3-D Printing Policies

The Library’s 3-D printer may be used only for lawful purposes. The public will not be permitted to use the Library’s 3-D printer to create any material that is:

  • Prohibited by local, state or federal law.
  • Unsafe, harmful, dangerous or poses an immediate threat to the well-being of others. (Such use may violate the terms of use of the manufacturer.)
  • Obscene or otherwise inappropriate for the Library environment.
  • In violation of another’s intellectual property rights.  By submitting content, the patron agrees to assume all responsibility for, and shall hold the Library harmless in, all matters related to patented, trademarked or copyrighted materials. 

The Library reserves the right to refuse any 3-D print request or reprint request. 

The Library is not responsible for the subsequent safety of any item made with the 3-D printer. 

Only designated Library staff will have hands-on access to the 3-D printer and it will be available only during scheduled workshops or by appointment. 

One initial print will be free for each patron, but subsequent prints will incur charges of $.20/gram of filament used.
