3-D Printers in Libraries

"It's actually part of a larger trend," says the ALA's Sari Feldman. 3-D printers are just the newest example of the interactive spaces that libraries are becoming for their communities, she says. 
"So, where once we thought of libraries as places where we had things for people, now we really do things for people — or do things with people," Feldman says. 
She says libraries large and small across the U.S. are setting up so-called "maker spaces," offering increasingly sophisticated hardware and software, including studio production equipment, design software and in some cases, even laser cutters. NPR
