This session highlights a collaboration between ILEAD USA, ALA and Instructables (http://www.instructables.com/), to create Make It @ Your Library which brings the best maker projects from Instructables to librarians in order to further the adoption and adaption of maker culture into library culture. Make It @ Your Library is a searchable database of Instructables projects that have been specially selected and tested for use in maker programming at libraries of all kinds. Addition- al metadata, including cost, age appropriateness, time, tools, and space requirements, have been added. Learn how to use and contribute to the website (www.makeitatyourlibrary.org) and also how to promote the processes of exploration, creation, and hands-on learning in your communities.
