Okanagan Library unveils new 3D printer

Printer workshops planned for local branches this summer

Okanagan Regional Library will hold a series of workshops across the region to demonstrate the capabilities of a newly acquired 3D printer.

The library maker crew will illustrate the theory, materials, process and outcomes of 3D printing.

This program will feature hands-on demonstrations, activities and will strive to spark engaging conversations around this very hot topic.

Each branch of the ORL will feature a maker crew program that encourages creativity and exploration.

“This technology has the potential to change how people think about physical objects and our needs. You now have an option to produce something that absolutely fits your need, rather than having to deal with what is available,” said Michal Utko, director of marketing and communications.

The June workshop schedule is:

10:30-11:30 a.m.
