Digital Media Lab
In the library’s Digital Media Lab, 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.
