one-dollar minimum cost. Other terms and conditions can be found in our 3D printer

Small-scale Laser Engraver
This free service allows students to engrave on small pieces of paper, leather, and some types of plastic.

LRC Seed Library
The LRC Seed Library gives the power of growing into campus users’ hands. The library has a wide variety of
free seeds available: vegetables, herbs, flowers, and more.
Next time you have extra seeds, please consider donating some to the CCC&TI seed library. Donations can
be grown and harvested, or store bought. Simply place donations in the marked box in the Makerspace. Please
fill out a donation form so future growers know what they are planting!
Looking for a certain type of seed? You are welcome to browse our display racks and files. The files
are alphabetized by variety name, so a pepper called Tabasco would be found under vegetables in the S-U drawer. Our
seed catalog holds donation forms with important information for growers.
