Lego MindstormWelcome to the Imaginarium at Windsor Public Library!

We provide hands-on access to technology to encourage exploration and innovation in our community. By having technological know-how, our citizens can compete globally, leading to a better quality of life.

Windsor Public Library is proud to play a leadership role in advocating for and providing equitable access to technology and digital information to bridge the digital divide. The Imaginarium is both a physical space at Nikola Budimir Library and a concept of sharing our technology in branches and other events. We are a place where people are connected with tools to express their creativity and desire to learn. Many of our branches also have mini-Imaginariums in place thanks to our Traveling Tech, so ask at your branch what Technology and Making they have available.

    I would like to create some YouTube content and I’m wondering what the process is for reserving your green screen room. Please advise.

  2. Angelique says:


    Is there anyone available to assist me with creating a book layout?

    Thank you

  3. Melissa says:


    do you still offer the Vinyl printing at the library?

    If so what do I need to proceed with that?



  4. Nancy says:

    Does your Tech Centre have the ability to scan an object and replicate it?

  5. Miguel says:

    Is the 3d printing service available during these times. I need to make a prototype of a face shield urgently

    • Chris Woodrow says:

      Unfortunately all of our locations are closed. The Windsor Public Library Board closed all library locations last month and joined with the City of Windsor to combat the spread of Covid-19.

  6. Dalia says:

    Hello, I was wondering if 3D printing is available or not at the libraries.
    Thank you.

    • Chris Woodrow says:

      3-D printing will be available when branches open.

      On Monday, August 31 WPL will trial a re-opening of Central, Budimir, Riverside and Local History branches under normal operational parameters. Customers will have direct access to library resources and computers, although meeting rooms will remain closed. Customers will be asked to self-screen at the door, social distancing will be expected and the wearing of a face covering is mandatory.

      If the trial openings go as planned, remaining branches will re-open on Tuesday, September 8.

  7. Chloe says:

    It says that your creation station contains a cameo vinyl cutter. Is that available for use still? And if so at what branch ?

  8. Miguel says:

    Why if most branches are open is 3D printing still not available. Private companies charge an arm and a leg for them. I have a prototype I need to print urgently but can’t afford it privately.

  9. Neil B. Dunn says:

    Will the 3D printers be available when you open on July 5th, 2021? If they are, do you have to book a time slot? How do you know how long it will take to make something? I would like to make plastic corners for screen frames for Ducana windows (they went out of business and I can’t find any more corners). I have someone working on a program as we speak.

    • Chris W. says:

      Yes, 3D printers will be available next week. I would suggest you call your branch ahead of time to check. I have forwarded your questions on – you will be contacted directly with the information you request.

    Hey! wondering if 3d printing services are up and available. If so, which locations.

  11. Dan says:

    Do I need to configure my design in Cura myself or is someone at the library able to help me with that?

    • Leisa says:

      Hello Dan, We recommend running the file through Cura yourself at home before sending our way. It’s free to download! This will help to give you an idea of printing time and cost and ensure that you have the dimensions you’d like. If you’re not comfortable doing so, a staff member at one of our 3D printing branches can help you out. Please note that you would need to make an appointment. If you are planning on e-mailing the file, make sure to send it as an .stl or .obj, not the gcode. Thanks!

  12. Katie says:

    Hi, I’d like to make 2 buttons. I tried calling but no one was able to assist me. Is this something I can book a timeslot to use like the 3D printer?
