Loveland Public Library: Empowering Patrons Through 3D Printing

Link to the case study:
Loveland Public Library:

At Loveland Public Library Tyera Eulberg, the library technology specialist, says their mission is to "leverage community resources to offer people access to things they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access and spark their interest and curiosity in directions that they might not have otherwise discovered.” Eulberg is an advocate for the hands-on learning experience patrons receive from the two 3D printers the library owns as well as the Open Source model that goes hand-in-hand with the library’s core value of information sharing.

All ages have access to the 3D printers. This results in a variety of prints, from knickknacks and phone cases to the project e-NABLE, where patrons print freely licensed prosthetics.
