New Program Brings Makerspace Projects to American Libraries

In collaboration with Instructables.com and the American Library Association, Make It @ Your Library introduces www.MakeItAtYourLibrary.org, a new website tailored to librarians interested in implementing makerspace projects in their libraries. Fully searchable, Make It @ Your Library connects users to projects, based on library-specific search criteria.

Instructables.com is an online DIY community for people over age 13 to make and share their projects, ideas and how-to information.

Make It @ Your Library, with Web development by Sean Fitzpatrick of LIS Host, aids librarians in identifying maker projects and classifies them by several elements including tools and space needed, age level, category, cost and time needed for the project.
