Edinburg employees create face shields using 3D printer


Edinburg (Texas)– Employees from the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library create 3D printed face shields to keep Edinburg’s first responders safe.

The city says the library created the face shields with one small printer, which they received through a grant a few years ago.

“The Library’s first priority has always been the community. We are here to serve in any way possible and although this is not our traditional library service,  it is a way to help and we are more than happy to do it, ” said Library Director Letty Leija. 

According to the city, each shield takes about an hour to create, and their goal is to create 100 of them.
