HOW IT WORKS

“The SLL team has put together an innovative model that empowers teachers to leverage quality resources… truly something that every under-resourced school district needs.” – Daniel Applewhite, Propeller

Equipment Sharing Resource Center

Library Lab uses a library model that allows schools to purchase an affordable annual membership determined by student enrollment and grade level. Membership grants teachers unlimited borrowing from our equipment library valued at over $80,000, as well as access to lesson plans, training, and one-on-one support sessions with our staff.

The Process

1

Step One

It all starts with a great idea!

2

Step Two

Teachers search and reserve equipment through our website, as well as explore lesson plans.

3

Step Three

Library Lab staff packages the equipment and prepares associated trainings.

4

Step Four

The teacher picks up their equipment order, puts it to use in their classroom, and returns it when the lesson is done.

5

Step Five

Library Lab staff performs routine maintenance, so the equipment is ready for use in the next classroom.
