With the funds from last year’s Mini-Golf Fundraiser and Friends of the Library Spring Arts Festival, the Library will soon be opening a Digital Media Lab on the 2nd floor in what was once the Periodicals Room. We plan to open the Lab in early June, but wanted to give cardholders a sneak peek at what’s to come.
We will have two stations with Macs, Adobe Creative Suite, and more. We have a Canon DSLR and a Canon Camcorder with a green, black or white backdrop that can be used in the library. We are also excited to offer Lynda.com which will offers users of the lab the chance to expand their knowledge with online tutorials.
We will also have VHS to DVD, LP to MP3 and Cassette to MP3 converters for people to update their older media to newer formats.
All of the equipment and software will be free to New Lenox cardholders. Stay tuned for more information soon!
