Create, explore and discover with Idea Lab Maker Kits! Each kit has a theme with related learning resources and supplies. You can reserve a kit by calling any Erie County Public Library location or by placing a hold on our catalog.
Learn about the technology available in the Idea Lab with Maker Guides. Each guide provides beginner level project ideas, learning resources and more. These resources have been meticulously compiled by your local librarian.
The Erie County Public Library welcomes the opportunity to support and promote the creative expression of our diverse community.
In that spirit, we have established the Idea Lab Creates collection, a showcase for community members who have used Idea Lab equipment or resources to create an original work. It could be a project from one of the Idea Lab’s Maker Guides, something created during a class, an item made with a Maker Kit, or any project related to Idea Lab themes.
Erie County residents of all ages are encouraged to submit their original work to this collection. View the collection below or submit one of your projects for us to share.
