Dr. Stephen Erosa from St. John’s Riverside Hospital in Yonkers reached out to Westchester libraries with a call to action. Dr. Erosa has started a 3D printer farm at the hospital and asked Westchester Libraries to contribute their machines. He will be printing out pieces for face guards for hospital staff and essential workers. The White Plains Public Library stepped up and donated its two 3D printers, the Ultimaker 2+ extended and the Flashforge Creator Pro, along with six rolls of filament to help out the cause.
On Thursday, Librarian Erik Carlson picked up the equipment and met with Dr. Erosa to hand off the 3D printers.
The White Plains Public Library is proud to be able to do its part in helping emergency workers stay safe and healthy as they care for the sick in this pandemic.
