Cuero Public Library debuts 3-D printer
The Cuero Public Library is pleased to announce that they have received a $5,000 grant from the M.G. and Lillie Johnson Foundation, Inc. to purchase a 3D Printer for patrons use. This grant project began as a result of the remodel of the Cuero Public Library and the mayor’s wish to incorporate a 3D Printer for patrons to use and learn new technology and provide a permanent STEM Station within the library.
STEM is an acronym for (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Its purpose is to create an educational program or space to develop and prepare students for these fields of study. In addition to subject-specific learning, their aim - as the library, is to foster inquiring minds and collaborative skills between students and the community.
With this goal in mind, they have made contact with Cuero ISD and hope that in the fall they may be able to work together.
“The Cuero Public Library cannot begin to thank the M.G. and Lillie Foundation, Inc. enough for giving us this opportunity to serve our community and provide a “Stem Technology” to our patron services,” library director Lynn Mixon said.
“We hope this new addition will be a learning center that engages and challenges all who use it.”
