Bay County Public Library gets 3-D printer

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The Bay County Public Library is helping locals show their creative side.

The library recently got a 3-D printer to help kids and parents alike create anything they can dream.

The 3-D printer can create everything from small items to a ukulele!

Staff members at the public library are still learning how to use the printer themselves, but are also welcoming others to come in and use this unique machine.

Library director, Robin Shader says, "Not everybody can go out and buy a 3-D printer, so we have several so we can do classes [with] and teach people how to use them and hopefully design their own objects."

There are currently 3-D printers in four library locations: Panama City, Panama City Beach, Port St. Joe, and Bristol.
