This looks like something where an experienced wikimedian with interest
in libraries and/or open access could fit.

I'm looking for resources to teach absolute beginners how to add a library
(public, academic, etc.) to Wikidata. In my case it would be an instance of
a public library in Australia.
I found this blog post that looks very good
thought I'd check in case there's anything else people know of?
I've also tried doing it ... see https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q63873691
and would be happy to have any tips on how to improve it, or pointers to
some best practice examples.

The Education Space specifically will host specific sessions for these
ovelaping topics, so please note that if you have a GLAM & EDU / Libraries
& EDU / GLAM & Medicine initiative, you are welcome to post it under the
Education space and note what else it relates to.
