Makerspace Mania

This Spring we will be piloting a new element in the library. It is called Makerspace, and will feature hands on projects and activities, tied in with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). This will begin in January with a Fun at Fallon after-school club offering for grades 3-5 and then extend. For additional information on the philosophy behind the Makerspace movement, please check out the article below:

A Giant thank you to all the parents that have generously donated requested supplies this year! I am developing a wonderful collection of resources for this exciting new program.


I am still looking for donations of the following items:


  • Plastic straws
  • Toilet paper and paper towel rolls
  • Coffee/drink stirrers
  • legos (no duplos, please)


Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Thank you!

Thanks so much to all the parent volunteers, donate-rs and all those that support the Media center programs. You make the library great!


Please don't hesitate to reach out to me for any of your library needs! I update our Destiny library links and page regularly so check there for any needed resources, such as how to code at home, author information or great research sites.
