3D printing is available, by appointment, at the Main Branch of the Greece Public Library.
What is 3D Printing?
3D printing allows people to create tangible objects from a computer file. With our Ultimaker 2+ printer, teens (16 and up) and adults have created cookie cutters, keychains, Christmas tree ornaments and more. Prior to working with the printer, users must complete an orientation session and sign a user agreement.
Why 3D Printing at the Greece Public Library?
Libraries have a long tradition of providing access to new technologies, acting as a community resource for those who would like to develop new skills and learn about their changing world. In the last century many first touched a computer, explored the internet and printed to a laser printer in libraries just like ours. The Greece Public Library's mission, "To engage, inspire and inform through community relevant learning opportunities", recognizes the importance of being a center of discovery for technologies, like 3D printing, that will impact the way we live in the 21st century.
