Inspire kids to learn science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by borrowing one of our makerspace kits! For kids aged 6 and over, these kits can show them how to develop their own musical instruments, how to turn bananas into a piano, how to program a little robot and much more.

Borrowing makerspace kits 

  • They are available at Warringah Mall, Dee Why, Glen Street, Manly and Mona Vale Libraries;
  • The loan period is three weeks;
  • The kits cannot be renewed, reserved or transferred, and
  • The kits must be returned to the branch it was borrowed from and handed to staff. We ask that the kits not be placed through the returns chute. 

You can search for available makerspace kits in the library catalogue or by selecting the links below.
