D105: Building Community & Global Partnerships

4:30 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.
Ellen Druda, Librarian Supervisor, Technology and Internet Services, Half Hollow Hills Community Library
Margie Hartough, Head of Teen Services, Teen Services, Half Hollow Hills Community Library

Using its Makerbot printer, the Half Hollow Hills Community Library has partnered with the global volunteer organization E-Nable to create kits for assembling prosthetic hands for needy children. The kits have all the necessary parts, including the 3D printed pieces, for teens to take home and put together for community service. The library then sends the completed hands on to E-Nable to distribute world-wide. This is a worthwhile project for libraries looking to do more with their printers!
