Make it @ Your Library
This site is brought to you in collaboration with Instructables and the American Library Association, and it is our hope that through this site, libraries of all stripes and sizes will be able to experiment with maker projects. Make it @ Your Library believes that content creation in the library is a vital direction for our libraries to pursue.
Maker projects don’t need to be the result of thousands of dollars of space renovation, equipment or special staffing. The projects on this site, powered by Instructables and vetted by librarians, are a great way to begin. Happy creating!

Adafruit Learning System
Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer, Limor "Ladyada" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels.
In 2012, after years of coding tutorials by hand, Limor put together a small team to build a custom tutorial management system from the ground up.
The Adafruit Learning System allows us to make a wide range of awesome tutorials fast and efficiently. We hope these tutorials will help you learn something new, and inspire you to make something great!
