Each chapter is written from an author's personal experience, and with only a little fine-tuning and imagination, many of these ideas can be used throughout all levels, disciplines, and subjects in K–12 education and carry over into higher education. The successes and optimism shared in this collection will inspire librarians and educators to think positively about how to implement maker learning locations, train staff, and use makerspaces in their libraries and classrooms to promote and share new ideas.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eProvides inspirational examples of successful makerspaces in school and public libraries\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eFurnishes practical, immediately usable projects, assignments, and curricula\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOffers needed examples of how to train maker librarians\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eShowcases working partnerships between school and public librarians in makerspace endeavors\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}

Instruments can also be a great way to get children's attention and teach literacy skills, whether it's a drum to beat while reading a story or a maraca for children to shake during a song, and lesson plans for musical storytimes address how to use rhythm, singing, and dancing to make early literacy fun.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eTeaches librarians how to use storytimes to build literacy skills in pre-readers of all ages\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOutlines all of the steps necessary to carry out pre-literacy storytimes, displays, and outreach activities with photos, examples, and instructions for librarians and families\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOffers ideas for using inexpensive \"doodads,\" especially those including letters of the alphabet, to build literacy skills\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eDetails how the musical and nonmusical can add musical elements to storytime to improve literacy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eProvides tips for engaging caretakers in storytime so that children may continue learning at home\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}

Readers will see why school and public libraries are venues ideally suited for coding classes, workshops, clubs, or camps, and they will understand why teaching coding not only meets an important need but also serves to highlight the library's relevance to its community.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eHelps librarians—even those without prior experience and training—launch highly successful programs in computer coding that engage both traditional literacy and technology literacy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eBuilds on the library's role as technology hub in the school and\/or community\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eEnables librarians to cultivate practical and valued skills among students and patrons—all while they have fun learning\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOffers insight from an instructor who leads coding clubs and classes in multiple libraries\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}
