Mini-Makers are take-home kits based in science, music, art, math, or technology. Kits combine physical objects, such as musical instruments and science equipment, with traditional library resources such as books and educational DVDs. They each contain the materials and information necessary to learn a new skill or activity.

Each kit has a 2-week checkout period.
