3D Printing at the Library!


Did you know the library has a 3D printer? Well, we do—an awesome Maker Farm Pegasus. In fact, our 3D printer was born here at the Library—a group of teens built it in the Ground Floor.

Experience 3D printing at these upcoming Library programs:

  • 3D Open Printing Labs
  • All ages (under 12 with adult)
