Okanagan library showcases 3-D printing tech

Programs to occur throughout Okanagan-Shuswap

Okanagan Regional Library’s new program will travel throughout the Okanagan Libraries to demonstrate the capabilities of a newly acquired 3-D 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.

June Schedule:

North Shuswap: Tuesday, June 5, 3-4 p.m.

Enderby Saturday, June 9 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Falkland Saturday, June 30 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
