    Contact: Bernadette Rivard   508-966-1660   brivard@bellinghamma.org
   

The Bellingham/Mendon Veteran’s oral history project has been underway for one year now, and we’d like to celebrate, thank the veterans who have been able to share their stories, and offer a chance for those veterans to share what it has meant to be involved in the project. This will be an opportunity to meet the veteran storytellers, say “Thank you” for their willingness to serve, and learn a little more about what you can do to help document and preserve veteran’s stories. We also expect to have some additional special guests who will share what they are doing in their own communities.

We are still working to collect more veteran’s stories so all interested veterans (and their families)are urged to attend, to learn more about the project. Light refreshments will be served.  So we can plan refreshments, registration suggested but not required.

    Location: Community Room
        There are 77 spaces available.

Join us for an introduction to 3D Printing with our Cube 3D Printer and Sense Scanner.  Learn about 3D Printing and see our printer (and NEW Sense Scanner) in action. Come and see the library's new Cube 3D Printer in action and learn about its basic operation. This workshop will cover an introduction to 3D printing and a demonstration to the group about the printer operation instructions. This class is limited to 8 people, high school age and above. 

This class will not cover designing a 3D object to print. It will focus on the details of printing predesigned objects and objects that can be scanned with our new 3D Sense Scanner. People interested in designing their own objects for printing need to provide .stl files formatted for PLA printing. The library does have software available for designing these files and we hope to offer training sessions on its use at sometime in the future
