WVLS and IFLS libraries can reserve makerspace kits that fit with the Libraries Rock! summer reading theme.

Kits arrive to your library (or preferred courier stop) ready to go. For most kits, no experience is needed as your adventurous library users can figure out how to play with whatever is in the kit.

It is okay if you do not have skill in crochet, coding, or drones, as long as you are flexible and encourage yourself and attendees to learn together. PLUS many if not all of the kits come with directions or idea sheets with how to get started.

Set up an account by emailing your library, name, your phone number, and your email (Gmail or Facebook) to help@librarieswin.org
