The City Library's Creative Lab provides a space with dedicated equipment and software to create, edit, and convert digital media projects including, but not limited to, video, audio, photography, and 3D modeling. The Creative Lab is intended for individuals or small groups and provides the community with access to technology resources that they may not otherwise have. The Creative Lab requires users to have a current Basic or Expanded Salt Lake City Public Library card in good standing; however, a library card is not required in order to attend Creative Lab classes. All equipment is for use solely within The Creative Lab.

Fri–Sat • 9:30am–5:30pm

Users can submit 3D print requests to be printed on one of the Library's several 3D printers, including the Lulzbot Taz 5 with E3D Titan Extruder, the Lulzbot Mini, or the Prusa i3 Mk3. The 3D printers take 3D designs that you create or download from the Internet and print a three-dimensional object in plastic.

1. Review the Policies and Procedures for Use of the 3D Printers.

2. Submit the 3D Printing Request Form using the link below, then email your STL file separately to

3. 3D print jobs will be set up and sent to the printer by Library staff and will be finished within two weeks unless otherwise specified. You will be notified via email when it is ready for pickup. Completed prints will be held for two weeks, at which point they will be recycled. You will be required to pay for the weight of filament used and the time spent printing your object at the time of pickup, as shown below:

Material cost per gram + $0.50/hour (excluding the first hour) = Final price.

(Note: There is no charge for items created as part of a Library class.)

Thank you to the Friends of The City Library for generously donating the 3D printers and associated equipment.
