Weeks after borrowing a 3-D printer to provide area residents with an opportunity to experience the technology, the St. Marys Public Library now has one of its own.
Back in November the library borrowed a 3-D printer from its district center in Warren and allowed patrons to request items for printing throughout the month. The machine was so popular and demand was so high that library director Leslie Swope decided to purchase a 3-D printer for the facility when grant funding became available at the end of the year.
