Town of Victoria Park. The Town of Victoria Park Library will be temporarily withdrawing the 3D Printing service from Monday, 18 May 2015.

It is anticipated the service will be reinstated once a staff member is on board to support its operations. The 3D printer requires continuous, specialised technical knowledge on site to manage and deliver successful print jobs as well as answer customer enquiries with confidence. This includes checking the CAD drawing for design anomalies prior to printing that will result in a flawed print job.

If customers wish to learn how to use a 3D printer, they can access services at the Victoria Park Digital Hub. The Town of Victoria Park Library currently has a Makerbot Replicator 2 available for members of our community to access and use to print 3D objects. Our Replicator uses PLA plastic and is available in the following colours: BlackWhiteGreyPurpleRedOrange Cost How to Print Collecting Your Print Finished objects can be collected, once notified, from the Library's front counter.

It was a great day at ALIA Information Online 2015 - some fantastic learning opportunities, great fun networking and some mind-expanding presentations.

ALIA Information Online 2015 Conference wrap Tuesday 3 February

The day started with a breakfast workshop on 3D printing by Dale Nicholls which encouraged libraries to create maker spaces so groups could learn new skills. One of the most interesting developments is libraries buying 3D printers and teaching groups in the community how to use the tool to produce many different things. Some examples of toys made by the printer were displayed. ALIA President Damian Lodge opened the conference, noting that the theme was ‘at the edge’. ‘With information at our fingertips, we are seeing amazing changes and innovations taking place with incredible speed. Mr Lodge also launched ALIA’s new advocacy campaign FAIR which stands for Freedom of Access to Information and Resources. FAIR’s website is now live and we would encourage you to sign up for the newsletter, get involved and to use the FAIR resources.

Teaching Art to Teens in Public Libraries, Teaching Artist Journal, 2013. One of the hottest terms among public librarians today is "content creation," which involves stuff that library patrons make instead of simply use in a library context.

Teaching Art to Teens in Public Libraries, Teaching Artist Journal, 2013

Videos, music, fiction, paintings, 3D printed materials, websites--all these are made in public libraries, and will increase in popularity as more libraries shift from purveyors of content to facilitators of creation. Libraries are becoming "incubators" of art, ideas, economic benefits, and community benefits. A library seething with creative energy can shock some traditionalists, who still see the library as a quiet place to read a book. Yet the mission of many public libraries is not only to inform via printed or multimedia materials but also to connect ideas and people, to build communities, and to offer transformative experiences to all by bridging opportunity divides.

In light of the "library=transformation" model, art programs are a natural fit. Routledge. Catalogue: State Library of WA XXX WA Health Libraries Network. What is 3D printing? How does 3D printing work? What Is 3D Printing and How Does It Work?
