Digital Media Lab — Online Orientation

The Digital Media Lab will be closed starting Monday, December 19 so we can move into our new space, The Studio.

The Studio will open on Saturday, January 7. The Tech2Go Collection will be available throughout the move.

To use the Digital Media Lab room inside of The Studio, you must go through orientation in-person or online. You must be a New Lenox Library card holder, or belong to a library that is a PrairieCat member. If you're not sure of your library's consortium membership, ask your home library. 

Please note that only adult New Lenox Library card holders (16+) can check out items from the Tech2Go DML collection.

In-person orientation

To request an in-person orientation, please call Digital Media Lab Coordinator Samantha Sliwa at 815-485-2605 ext. 127 or email Orientations take 15–30 minutes.
