Additional Services

3-D Printing

The library offers a Flashforge Finder 3D printer for patron use. Reservations should be made in advance. While a nominal fee may be charged in the future to cover material expenses, there is currently no cost for printing.

Items can be printed from one of the preformatted objects or patrons can create their own builds to download from one of the following programs: TinkercadMeshmixer, or 123D Designs. Patrons are also encouraged to download designs from Myminifactory and Thingiverse. To prepare the files for our 3D printer, patrons can use the Mac terminal next to the 3D printer to slice the design, or download the Flashprint 5 Slicer for free.

Patrons are asked to be mindful that builds can take up to several hours to complete and to time their visits according to library hours.

Borrow a Kindle

The Free Library of New Hope and Solebury is pleased to make preloaded Kindle e-readers available to our patrons for borrowing. Choose from Kids’ Kindle, Classic Kindle, Popular Fiction Kindle or Mystery Kindle. Please click here for a list of currently available titles.

    1. Borrowers must be adults (age 18 and older), possess a valid Bucks County Free Library card and be members in good standing with the library.
    2. An e-reader and its accessories may be borrowed for three weeks. Renewals are not permitted.
    3. E-readers must be picked up from and returned directly to the The Free Library of New Hope and Solebury Circulation Desk to a library staff member. E-readers dropped off at other libraries or returned in the book drop will incur a $25 fee for unnecessary risk to the device.

Proctoring service is available at the rate of $25 per hour. Those interested should call in advance and make arrangements with the director no less than one week in advance of the test. Exams are conducted during the library’s regular hours of operation. Payment is accepted by check or cash and must be paid prior to taking the exam.
