NBC Bay Area has a piece on the new 3-D printer that the Sunnyvale Public Library has obtained, paid for by a federal grant. We’re the first library in the Bay Area to have one of these. Check out the video to see the doohicky in action. Very impressive, and I need to get myself a tour of it, post-haste.
The printer is kept in the library’s administrative area. Staff will review designs before submitting them, and staff controls access to the resulting product. So there are no worries about patrons using it to create inappropriate items.
