Library Raising Funds for Hulk Statue & 3D Printer

The Northlake Public Library in Illinois hopes to raise funds on IndieGoGo to erect a 9 foot tall statue of the Hulk. They also hope to add a variety of digital tools to the library, including a 3D printer.

We’ve embedded the introduction video above–what do you think? The library needs to raise $30,000 to meet their goals. Here’s more from the Indiegogo campaign:

Just as Dr. Bruce Banner transforms into the Hulk, we want our library community members to make their own personal transformations through books, programs, and awesome new equipment. This larger-than-life literary character will become a giant green beacon of light to highlight our graphic novel collection, our creation station…not to mention the library’s sense of humor and whimsy. The project will show off the fun side of the library and get the community talking. The HULK will force patrons to look at the library in a whole new way … We also want to promote digital literacy and provide patrons with a spot where they can create their own comics, art, movies and experiment with digital design and photo editing. We want to provide patrons with a glimpse into the future with cutting edge technology like 3D printers.
