You can learn how to use our 3D printer to craft jewelry, toys, cell phone cases, widgets and more during a free program at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, at our Main Branch.

You don’t need to know how computer-aided design to attend or benefit from the class. Librarian Mary Pelton will provide websites where you can find computer files—specifically stereolithograpy (STL) files—that can be printed by the 3D printer.

Make rubberband cars, T-Rex skulls or replacement parts for your skateboards with no design experience.

The program is free to attend. We only ask that you register beforehand. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.

By the way, there is an expense to use our 3D printer. We charge $1 for each hour it takes an item to print, rounding up to the nearest quarter of an hour.
