Maker Kits

Maker Kits are made possible through a Knight Foundation Prototype Fund Grant. Librarians in the State of Illinois are able to borrow the kits from the Illinois State Library through Interlibrary Loan. 

The kits circulate for four weeks and are for in-library use only.


The kits can be requested via I-Share or OCLC. Search for the kits by title beginning with “Make It @ Your Library.” If a kit is not available, contact the State Library circulation desk at or 217-782-7573 to reserve a copy.
