3D Printing at the San Bernardino Public Library

The new Makerspace at the San Bernardino Public Library will be offering a 3D Printing Workshop on Thursday, January 31, 2019. It will be held from 2 – 5:30 PM inthe Jack L. Hill Lifelong Learning Center on the 2nd floor of the Feldheym Central Library, at 555 W. 6th Street.

Learn the basics of Tinkercad and make a personalized keychain. This workshop is Part 1. Participants will return in late February for part 2, to come back and “print” their keychain. This free workshop is open to the public, ages 13 and up.

What is a Makerspace? It’s a place for people, including kids, to work together and make and review projects together. Making can happen anywhere—on a kitchen table or living room rug or garage. It’s an opportunity to Dream, Design and Create.

The San Bernardino Public Library was recently chosen as 1 of 10 public libraries to participate in a California State Library project - “Developing Makerspaces in Libraries throughout California”. A small $10,000 Planning and Implementation grant was provided to accomplish a program for Makerspace activities. The project has involved such projects as De-constructing a computer, A Virtual Reality experience, A Cardboard Challenge, and other projects to follow. The library will be providing patrons with opportunities to use new technology such as a 3D printing and Virtual Reality (VR) and other projects as the space develops.
