From the TPL:
Toronto Public Library (TPL) is providing 10 of the library’s Ultimaker 2+ 3D printers for loan to a team at Toronto General Hospital to support their efforts to produce personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
A team at the Lynn and Arnold Irwin Advanced Perioperative Imaging Lab (APIL) department, led by Doctor Azad Mashari and production manager Joshua Hiansen, is producing face shields that include 3D printed components.
Many public libraries around the world have makerspaces and 3D printing technology and programs, such as TPL’s Digital Innovation Hubs. In response to COVID-19, several libraries are supporting similar 3D-printing community efforts, including Kitchener and Stratford.
