Wichita Public Library introduces 3D printing

February 13, 2020 - 1:30 pm

The Wichita Public Library will begin 3D printing services in March at the Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd St.

“One goal we have at the Library is to continue incorporating new technology into our library spaces,” said Cynthia Berner, Director of Libraries. “The 3D printing service will let customers use their creativity while exploring technology.”

Customers must be 14 years old, have a library card in good standing and Library staff must certify customers prior to using the service. The certification process includes two classes (3D Printer Demo and 3D Printer Process) and a staff-mediated print job. Cost for 3D print jobs will depend on the weight of the final product, and will be determined by the printing software.

The first round of certification classes will begin in March. If customers aren’t able to attend the scheduled certification classes, they can request a Book-A-Librarian session, with three or less people, to cover the class material. Book-A-Librarian classes can be reserved by calling 261-8500.
