The library is not liable for any damage or loss that may happen to a user’s personal equipment and/or user accounts.

The library is a public space and what you view can impact others walking by or using the same space. Please note that users may be required to end a game if there are patron complaints about the content.

Content Creator Studio

The Content Creator Studio features a mostly sound-restricted room and a complete suite of technology for creating podcasts and videos.

Due to high demand for the studio, please limit reservations to 3 hours per day. 

Please note that a second computer equipped with editing software is available for use in the main library.     

Library staff are not experts with Podcasting and Podcast equipment. Library staff can orient you to the basics of the equipment, but may not have time to help further. If you need further assistance, you can schedule a Tech Help appointment with a trained staff member.

Designed to inspire creativity, this space features ample natural light, comfortable work tables, and a convenient sink for easy project clean-up.
