Why a Fab Lab at the Fayetteville Free Library?

Many of these technologies are not accessible to the general public. For instance, there is no other place in New York that provides free and open access to 3D printing technology, which has the power to revolutionize society. The public library will provide a safe and accessible space where anyone in the community can interact, understand and develop through use of the technologies available in the space.
