The Digital Media Lab
The library’s Digital Media Lab is a place where high school and adult members can create music and videos and edit digital creations in Garage Band, iMovie, or Audacity. This soundproof lab makes an excellent home-away-from-home recording studio, complete with high-quality stereo speakers and wall panel sound diffusers.
