Through the end of April, come visit the Adams County Public Library to see a 3D printer in action. The library has borrowed an UP Plus 2 3D printer from SWON Libraries, and we’re holding demonstrations at each library branch. 3D printing uses computer software to design and fabricate any three dimensional object by building thin layers of superheated plastic filament. Call to ask about having a custom item printed for you.

Want a hands-on experience? Come try the 3Doodler, a small handheld extruder that lets you control the flow of plastic filament. AmeriCorps volunteer Melissa will demonstrate the 3D Printer Showcase at the Manchester Library on April 20, the North Adams Library on April 21 and 25, and the Peebles Library from April 26 – 29. Call 937-587-2085 for more information.
