<more at>

According to Amazon (, highlights and best practices include: 

  • budgeting and business planning for a librarymakerspace,
  • creating operational documents,
  • tools and resources overviews,
  • national and international case studies,
  • becoming familiar with 3D printers through practical printing projects (seed bombs),
  • how to get started with Arduino (illuminate your library with a LED ambient mood light),
  • how to host a FIRST Robotics Team at the library,
  • how to develop hands-on engagement for senior makers (Squishy Circuits), and
  • how to host a Hackathon and build a coding community
