Idea Lab wows library patrons

“Need to replicate a hinge on a washing machine? Create wedding cake ornamentation? Convert vinyl records to digital? Head to the new Idea Lab media studio at the 95th Street branch of the Naperville Public Library. Adjacent to the second-floor computer area, the space contains 15 pieces of new hardware, including a 3-D printer, and 26 software programs on powerful computers not found in most homes. “We’re very proud to offer the 3-D printer and scanner, but the conversion software also is going to be very popular,” said Karen Dunford, branch manager. “People were coming up and saying, ‘you mean I can bring in my wedding tape and convert it to digital?’ And then when they heard it was free, all they could say was ‘wow.’”(via chicagotribune.com)
