​How Can I Help?

Here's how YOU can help spread the joy of making to kids at the Phoenix Public Library!

Donate Materials

Here are some of the materials that we are always in need of:

  • LEGOs
  • K'NEX
  • Snap Circuits
  • Construction Paper​
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Old computers and electronics
  • Old toys and board games

If you have any of these items and wish to donate them, please stop by MACH1 to drop them off.  If you have other items that are not on the list and you wish to donate them, please call 602-262-4636 and ask to be transferred to Kelly Pearson.

​Donate Time

You can volunteer in MACH1 as a general Makerspace Coach.  Our coaches help with equipment, assist people with their projects, and teach classes. Classes can be in almost anything you would like to share such as computer programming, sewing, crafting, upcycling, robotics and more. Makerspace Coaches should plan for 2-3 class sessions of 1-2 hours programs. Makerspace Coaches should have good people skills, not be afraid to try new things and enjoy working with different types of technology and tools.

You can apply to be a Makerspace Coach at the City of Phoenix Volunteer site here. Search for Makerspace and then follow the application process.

Donate Money

Don't have stuff or time? You can donate money as well. By donating money to the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library, you will directly support the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programming that happens in MACH1. You can donate any amount at any time. You can earmark your donations for specific programs as well. 

Donate money in person at any Phoenix Public Library Friend's Corner or donate online.
