The library is hosting a NORWELD Dremel 3D printer for this month, for patrons to use. If you've never seen a 3D printer or what they are capable of, then stop by for a demonstration. Patrons are welcome to bring a flash drive with a pre-formatted file to print or choose from the selection of items available on the printer. Suggested donations are 50-cents per hour of requested print to help cover the cost of the filament.
