Open Lab Hours at Central Library

If you haven't been to Central Library's Digital Literacy Lab, it is a great space that provides free access to equipment and software such as the full Adobe Creative Suite, stop motion film equipment, a green screen, video game development software, and more. All summer long, we will be hosting a special time for tweens and teens to come in and use the equipment in the room, bypassing the required orientation on the space. This will be a time for you to have creative freedom and work on long term projects if you'd like. Open Lab will be every Monday from 2-4. Questions? Call 918-549-7323.
