With 2019 underway and New Year's resolutions still fresh on the brain, Washington Memorial Library's new 3D printer could not have come at a better time. 

The printer is free to use for anyone with a local library card, and Lauren Mullins, Head of Washington Memorial Library, encourages Central Georgians to have fun with the new addition. 

"It offers a very creative outlet, as well as a practical one," says Mullins. "That's why we have it open to the public so they can show us new ways to use it."

According to Mullins, the printer has already been used to create braille business cards, miniature figurines, and pieces for a larger scale model. Designs can also be printed in an array of colors.

Users can print their ideas in a range of colors and can get started after taking a free, 1-hour class provided by the library. After taking the class, you can email your idea to the library or bring it in on a thumb drive to get it printed.

"I think the sky's the limit. You're only limited by your imagination," says Mullins.

Washington Memorial Library's next 3D training class is on Jan. 16. For more information, contact wmlref@bibblib.org.
