3D Print Your Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner! If you haven’t yet decided on a costume, consider 3D printing a mask or a quirky mustache.You could also try making skull-shaped treats with 3D printed candy molds. Watch for these and other frighteningly good ideas as we explore the “scary” side of 3D printing! From October 26th-31st, the media center is offering free 3D printing to students who wish to create Halloween themed accessories.

Not sure how to print an object? Not a problem! Media center staff will gladly assist you with the every step of the process. Make an appointment or stop by the media center today to begin your creation.

Banned Books

The Rebecca Crown Library has a brand new display showing off some rap sheets of some of the most banned/challenged authors in recent memory. Some of the authors displayed include Harper Lee (To Kill A Mockingbird), J.K Rowling (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), and Sherman Alexie (The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian). The prison chains around some of the materials were created using the 3D Printer in the Media Center of the Rebecca Crown Library.  This display is made in coordination with ALA Banned Books Week.

For the next month, come take a photo of your mug shot and tweet @domlibrary. Use the hashtags #BannedBooks2015 #DULibrary #RebeccaCrownLibrary and #Possibilities.
