The Adair County library is taking steps to purchase new items for their building.

They are holding a fundraiser for their KLI Mobile Makerspace Project.

A 3D printer, IPAD, green screen kit, and storage cart are just a few items on their wish list.

These items will be available for the community to rent out at the library.

Member of the Kirksville Leadership Institute class, Dee Motter says the idea came about after the class brainstormed ideas to better the community.

The library has raised $3,200 over the course of five months, almost making it to their goal of raising $4,288 by October.

Children librarian, Cory Landon says makerspaces have increased in library's in the last several months and having one in Kirksville gives community members easy access to one nearby.

Our goal is that it invites more programming and more kids to just come and explore what else is at the library besides books.

If you are interested in making a donation, there is a donation box located at the front desk of the library.
