3D Printer in Motion

Thanks to our partnership with Pipestone Area Schools and Mr. D, we have a new 3D printer at Meinders Library.

Our very first print in action!

Thanks to State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist grant, we also have three library pets. Our tiniest robots are solar powered and are in much need of names. Our frilled lizard, Joanna, responds to her environment through artificial intelligence, though it took the intelligence of PAS students, Lucas Winter and Carson Wipf to build them for us!

Library Pet Robots

Stop in any time during open hours and see our printer in motion as we gear up for Full STEAM Ahead this Saturday.

Visit us on May 19 between 10am and 2pm to put your suggested names into a drawing for our tiny warthog and cricket robots.
