Fayetteville Free Library offering the Fab Lab

Thank you to Karin Dykeman for sharing this information!

The Fayetteville Free Library is excited to offer a new public service the FFL Fab Lab. What exactly is a fab lab? According to Neil Gershenfeld, the Director of MITs Center for Bits and Atoms and author of Fab: the Coming Revolution on Your Desktop-From Personal Computers to Personal Fabrication, a fab lab is a collection of commercially available machines and parts linked by software and processes developed for making things (Gershenfeld, 12). At the foundation of the FFL's Fab Lab will be a MakerBot Thing-o-Matic 3D printer, made available to the library through a generous donation from Express Computer Services.
