To use the Digital Media Lab, you must go through a quick orientation. You can do this two ways: with a staff member at the library, or here in the Online Orientation. You must be a New Lenox Library card holder, or belong to a library that is a PrairieCat member. If you're not sure, ask your home library what catalog system they belong to, if any (local examples include PrairieCat, SWAN, and Pinnacle).
Please note that only adult New Lenox Library card holders (18+) can check out equipment for use outside of the library.
To complete your orientation online:
- Read the Policy & fill out the User Agreement
- Watch the videos
- Take the quiz
After the quiz, print out your results (keep retrying for 12 out of 12). Print out the first page (with your name, email address, and score).
Bring the User Agreement and your quiz results to the library, and you’ll be ready to use the Digital Media Lab. If you don’t have a printer, you can use our Mobile Printing service.
