Learning Linux: Maker Stations

image of old self check machineDo you remember our old self-check machines? Maybe not so fondly? Two of them are coming back, but in a good way! When the library added the new self-check machines, there was a question about what to do with the old ones. We tried selling them, but no one wanted them.

I had an idea. Last summer, we had a lot of interest in Raspberry Pi at our maker event. What if we turned the two free-standing units into stations where people could come and play with the RPi?

Building Services refinished the desktops -- they look fantastic, btw. I gutted all of the self-checks for parts to be used in the library or for future Maker Club projects.
