An Arduino is a microcontroller used to build digital devices and interactive objects. Arduino Kits include the Arduino itself and all the components needed to build neat electronic projects.

Arduino Kits are available from Digital Innovation Hubs at Albion, Agincourt, Downsview, Fort York, North York Central Library, Scarborough Civic Centre and Toronto Reference Library for in-library use or to borrow and take home

There are three types of kits available, with projects of increasing difficulty. All kits include instructional booklets for example projects.

Borrowing Rules

Arduino kits can only be borrowed from Digital Innovation Hubs to a valid Adult or Teen library card:

Questions and Feedback

The Arduino kit lending is a pilot program launched in May 2018 initiated through the library's Staff Innovation Program.

We welcome questions and feedback. Staff at our Digital Innovation Hubs will be happy to speak with you.

The library will evaluate this pilot in Fall 2018. Pending the results of this pilot, the library may consider other types of equipment lending programs through our Digital Innovation Hubs.
