Equipment

There is no charge to use the equipment in the Innovation Centers, however users are responsible for the costs of consumable materials (eg. 3-D printing filament, vinyl material, etc.), a limited supply of which are available for purchase at the Library checkout desk.  We encourage innovators to use their own approved materials for their own projects.  The equipment available at each of our Innovation Centers is listed below.
