The Michael Kusalaba library hosted an outer space themed jewelry making event on July 10.

Librarian Hannah Matulek hosted the event, using the library’s maker space 3D printer to make space themed pendants.

“I want it to be personalized,” Matulek said. “I want everyone to find their own design.”

Community members started by searching on thingiverse.com for designs of space themed 3D pendants, with Matulek offering a number of suggestions.

After community members made their selections, they were able to load them onto the computer connected to the 3D printer and customize them.

Matulek helped community members select the size of the pendant, and add space to connect the pendant to a chain.

The event was space themed to fit in the library’s summer reading program’s theme, which is “A Universe of Stories.”
