3D Printing at WTML
The library's new 3D printer, a MakerBot Replicator Fifth Generation, will soon become available for library patron use.
It can print items up to 10"x8"x6".
It works similar to a hot glue gun - it is fed plastic filament that it melts at three times the heat of boiling water. The printer then places miniscule plastic drops where the design tells it to and then builds up the drops to create a 3D object. For further information, please contact Library Director Barbara Bailey by phone at 860-652-7717 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to the Friends of Welles-Turner Memorial Library for purchasing this printer for public use.
We're changing up our holiday donations this year: Instead of socks, hats, mitten and gloves, Social Services has asked for donations of new children's books. We will collect these new books between Thanksgiving and December 11 and deliver them to Social Services on December 12. Purchase a children's picture book, easy reader or chapter book and bring it to the library's Lending Desk. You will receive an "ornament" on which to write the title of your donation and then hang it on the tree. Let's fill the tree with lots of "ornaments!" We thank you in advance for helping to make this a happy holiday for many children in our community.
