    The library's 3D printer is out on the floor and accepting reservations! If you have an .stl file you created in your own computer aided design (CAD) software or downloaded one from a site like thingiverse.com, you can go here and reserve your 2 hour block.

    We're happy to say that, thanks to the Friends of the Library's annual appeal, there is currently no charge for a 2 hour print job. However, jobs that take longer than two hours may be subject to a charge.

    If you attended one of the demos at the library over the past few months and were waiting for the printer to be available, your wait is over. If you missed the demos, you'll be able to catch up quickly because technology librarian, Brad McKenna, will be on hand during your reservation time to teach you how to use it.

    The Children’s Department is happy to announce the launch of their eight Early Literacy Fun Packs! These backpacks are filled with books and activities targeting the five early literacy skills, Reading, Writing, Singing, Playing and Talking. Each backpack includes books, a music CD, a Magic Board, and toys related to a theme. An Activity Guide for the parent or caregiver is also included, which consists of activities, songs, and games that help support early literacy skills at home. The eight themes include Alphabet, Bears, Bedtime, Colors, Counting, Farm, Five Senses, and Shapes. You can find the Early Literacy Fun Packs in the Children’s Room at the circulation desk. The backpacks can be checked out for one week at a time and can be placed on hold by Wilmington patrons.   Stop by the library today and check out a Fun Pack!
