Adventures in 3D Printing at a Public Library and Our 3D Printer Diary


Adventures in 3D Printing at a Public Library
Our program will describe our experiences implementing a 3D printer and making it available for use by patrons at the Shrewsbury & Merrimack Public Libraries. We will discuss the various challenges we encountered, how we went about overcoming those challenges, and the various services and programs we have used the printer for. Attendees will learn tips and techniques for implementing 3D printing for patrons of their own library.

Our 3D Printer Diary:
For those who are looking for information about how to integrate a 3D Printer into their library services, hear from Director Yvette Couser, Adult Services and eResources Librarian Alex Estabrook and Rob Burnham, CEO of TKI - Turn Key Innovations, about how we raised funds and community support to purchase and install our locally made 3D printer in January 2016.
