Kits will be available at each branch on a table next to Curbside Pick-up on Monday afternoons from 2 to 4 pm and Tuesday mornings from 10 am to 12 pm while supplies last. One kit per person, please. No registration is required.

We'd love to see what you make! Share your creation on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #warrenlib, #NJSTEMMonth, and #NJMakersDay.

Be sure to look for a new kit each week!
