continued interest in the community through surveys and statistics.
Librarys Mission: PGCMLS mission is to engage, enrich, and illuminate. We will engage the community
by offering a way for the children to learn how they can create 3D models for 3D printing. We will enrich
children, youth, and adults by showcasing the potential of using a 3D printer and the positive outcomes
that include our future entrepreneurs. We will illuminate our community by having a 3D printer in
various Branches to give the community an opportunity to see something they may not have seen,
heard of, or known about.
