Contest: New Uses for Old Spools

Demonstrate your resourceful creativity! How? Well, the library’s 3D printer uses a plant-based filament; however, the primary vendor of the filament uses plastic spools that are not easily recyclable. To help mark Earth Week, we invite members of the Einstein community to explore creative ways to reuse/repurpose these empty spools.

Stop by the library to pick up your spool, starting Monday, April 9. Bring your new iteration to the library by Friday, April 20 Your creations will be put on display in the library from April 23 to April 27, and members of the Einstein community will be invited to vote on the winners. See our 3D printing guide for contest details and prize categories
