Make It @ Your Library is kicking off the holiday season in style. The air is crisp, the leaves have fallen, and librarians everywhere are showing off their cookbooks to ever-ambitious patrons. We’ve picked out a few stellar Thanksgiving-themed projects to highlight. Some are more library-friendly than others, but all are things to keep in mind when planning autumn programs (and all simply smack of holiday joy).
You may have noticed that some of the projects we share on Make It @ Your Library could be considered hazardous.
So why would we share ideas for maker activities that are potentially dangerous? Because the maker movement embraces all types of makers and doers with a wide range of skills and interests.
Way back in March 2013, Make It @ Your Library was just a glimmer in our eyes. We went to Springfield, IL for the first meeting of ILEAD USA with a simple concept, to create a resource that would connect libraries of all shapes and sizes with the maker activities that suit them.
