2016 Make It at the Library application now open!

Idaho libraries are leading the way in making, and your public library can join this exciting movement!

Applications to participate in the 2016 Make It at the library cohort are now open to publically funded libraries.  The project will run from January 1-June 30, 2016.  Participating libraries will receive 6 days of training at ICfL (3 days in February and 3 days in May), making tools and supplies, and lots of programming ideas.  They will also network with other libraries involved in the making movement to share their programming successes and challenges.  The training will focus on programming for tweens and teens, but the tools can be used to develop programming for  all audiences. The application is due December 11; successful applicants will be notified by early January.

More information about the project, including the Memorandum of Understanding outlining participant requirements and the scoring rubric can be found here: http://libraries.idaho.gov/landing/tweens-and-teens.  The Make It at the library Facebook page contains photos and information from previous cohorts as well as comments from makers around the country.
