Welcome to the Technology Department
We here at the Clinton Public Library are proud to bring new tech to the Clinton area. We are currently offering TinkerCad classes on Saturdays during the school year. We have a 3D printer that is open to the public at cost of material and open computer usage for youth under the age of 13 in the Children's Department on the second floor of the library. Teens and adults have access to open computers for 90 minutes each day for free.
3D printing has been a growing trend in the past few years, and we are proud at the Clinton Public Library to unveil a new program to introduce 3D printing to you, our patrons. Starting on September 1, we are making our Monoprice 3D printer available to the public. Please come down and check it out in the Children’s Department upstairs!
What is 3D printing?
Well, think of it like using a hot glue gun but not having to worry about shaky hands and missteps along the way. 3D printing is a more precise way to make prototype models and fun things. More importantly 3Dprinting is something that we as normal people can use to find solutions to everyday problems.
How do I get started?
It’s easy! Come down to the library and join us for a fun, laid back tutorial where you will learn a skill that you can put on your resume. You can learn more about our FREE program here.
We are also excited to offer classes to teach kids how to invent and create using littleBits! littleBits are fun, easy-to-use electronic building blocks empowering kids to create inventions large and small. Our littleBits technology kits are a great STEAM activity that promotes invention-based learning for kids of all ages. Click here to learn more about our program!
