How to Run an Awesome Makers Club in Your Library
An after-school (or during school) Makers Club is a great way to jump-start a makerspace program in your library. Whether you already have a thriving makerspace or are just beginning one, forming an after-school group is ideal for diving deep into projects and building up a culture of making in your library. Learn strategies for getting started, setting norms and procedures, balancing design challenges with free exploration, and creating a reflection and sharing piece for students.

Join us to learn how to:

Create an actionable plan to start a Makers Club at your school
Create norms and procedures for your club
Plan projects and activities for your club
Support a maker culture within your library
