The presentation itself is about an hour with 30 minutes for the audience to ask questions. The state of New Jersey has a large number of resources available not just for the deaf, but also for those with hearing loss such as senior citizens and individuals who lose their hearing later in life, including veterans who come back from overseas with hearing loss related to loud noise exposure.   ASL interpreters will be available at this program.

Tinkercad: Make Real Stuff
With free cloud-based software anyone can build their own models and 3D print their final creations on Monday afternoons during the library's Makerspace. On Monday January 30 at 6 PM, Hoboken designer and animator Nicola Hoelzl is hosting a 1-hour intro session to 3D-modeling. Students will follow the online lessons, learning to navigate and create models. Each participant can produce their own designs, either a toy house, a pet sculpture, or jewelry.  Recently, Nicola created an online 3D-modeling course called D*Wiz and she is also currently teaching after-school enrichment programs at Hoboken schools. Please note that a valid email address is required to use the Tinkercad website.
