In 82 days we'll be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of  our combined library on the Lone Star College Tomball campus. Today the library staff received training in 3D printing so that when that great day comes, you will be able to watch a demonstration of a 3D object being printed as part of our festivities. Mark your calendars for January 31st, 2015.
