Lane Cove Library provides a range of technology:


3D Printing

3D Printing is available at Lane Cove Library. The printer is available on Thursday evenings 5:00pm - 9:00pm or by appointment. The 3D printing fee is $5.00 per job plus $0.10 per minute print time.

Let the library know which design you would like and the web source. Designs may be obtained from a variety of websites - www.thingyverse.com, www.youmagine.com

Designs will be transferred to an SD card for insertion into the 3D printer. Print jobs will be completed in a single colour (red, blue, gold, silver, magenta or black).

To book or obtain a quotation please email the Library.


Launchpads

Keep your brain active with an Adult Launchpad - inlcuding crossword puzzles, number activities, hidden object games and map brain games.

The Junior Launchpads are suitable for preschool to aged 10+ and topics include English, Maths, Science, Music and eBooks.

The Launchpads do not have Internet connectivity and earphones are not required. Each tablet comes with a power charging cord which can be plugged into a computer to recharge when the battery runs low.

Launchpads can only be borrowed on an adult library card. Junior Launchpads are located near the Junior Audiobooks, while the Adult Launchpads are located near the Adult Audiobooks.
