3D Printing Is on Its Way to the Toronto Public Library

"Digital Innovation Hubs" are slated to open soon at two TPL locations.

Coming in early 2014 to both the Reference Library and the new Fort York branch are digital learning and work spaces complete with Macs, video cameras (and green screens!), professional-grade software—and, of course, 3D scanners and printers, which can do some pretty amazing things. Although the printers aren’t up and running quite yet, they have now arrived—and yesterday, TPL staff got the chance to learn about and play with their shiny, and extremely useful, new hardware. And starting in February, you’ll be able to take a tour of the Reference Library’s Digital Innovation Hub, and get hands-on with its technological holdings.
