Update from Behind the Walls

Melrose Floor Plan

In anticipation of the grand opening of our new Center, take a look at the latest floor plan and imagine what you will do when the center opens. Perhaps you will create and edit your movie in the video studio and editing booths, or record your music in the audio studio. Maybe you will use the green screen in the photography studio and create compelling images using the Adobe Creative Suite software. Collaboration stations will make it easy to work together on group projects and for businesses, you get to enjoy the convenience of our state-of-the-art conference room.

Coming February 2014 @ the Orlando Public Library.

Are you ready for the holidays?

At the Orlando Public Library we can say, “We are!” Or at least, we will be after attending this Saturday’s class, Design and Print Your Own Customer Cookie Cutters. It is wonderful to bake cookies for family and friends, but imagine the awesomeness of baking cookies using the cookie cutter you designed and printed. This class will have a drawing and the lucky winner can return to pick up their cookie cutter prototype printed by the library for free. So join us here at the Orlando Public Library on this Saturday, November 2 at 10 am and perhaps you will be the lucky winner!

Media Visits

Technology and Education staff members have recently been excited to host visits from local media interested in the progress of the Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center.  We were delighted to have journalists from the Orlando Sentinel visit and write an article about the Melrose Center and the Orlando Public Library in general.  A TV crew from the Orlando Telemundo Broadcasting Company got a firsthand look at the Center in its development stages and was given a run through of the Fab Lab technology behind the scenes.  Take a look at our “celebrity” staff members and newest board member Hernan Tagliani, as they publicize the Melrose Center and our anticipated opening.

And don’t forget to keep watching the blog for further details about the Melrose Center and technology classes at the Orlando Public Library.
