Our 3D printer has been busy since its unveiling in March.  We’ve printed a lot of items but the ones we’re proudest of are the ones that help our area teens. Below is an interview conducted by Pam Carswell, our Teen Librarian and Jurnee, an area teen who has lost a lot of her sight due to cancer.

Pam: “So Jurnee, how long have you been coming to the library?”

Jurnee:”Since I was in the bucket car seat!”

Pam: “What’s the hardest thing about not being able to see well?”

Jurnee: “Going down stairs because they all blend in.”
