Briggs Lawrence County Public Library invites public to observe new 3-D printer, VR headset

December 7, 2018

Briggs Lawrence County Public Library recently acquired new technology to help patrons keep up with the ever-changing information landscape. Patrons of all ages are invited to a demonstration of a 3-D printer and to try a virtual reality headset at three Briggs Library locations.

The schedule for the Introduction to 3-D Printing and Virtual Reality workshops is: 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, at the Ironton library; 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, at the South Point library; and 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 17, at the Chesapeake library. Please sign up to attend by contacting the presenting locations.

Just because the library has new tech, doesn’t mean it can’t go old school. The Symmes Valley branch is starting a quilting and sewing group.

Anyone, from beginner to expert, who is interested in quilting and sewing is invited to a Quilting and Sewing Meet-up at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Symmes Valley library. Bring your machines, talk about patterns, or prep projects to complete at home.

For information about the quilting meet-up, call Becky at 740-643-2086 during the Symmes Valley library’s hours: 3 to 7:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays or 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays
