It’s mid-2013. Freelancing, start-up entrepreneurship and mobile offices are the new norm. Collaborative work spaces are cool again, popping up all over town for techies, creatives and places for publishing… So why take an old space and give it a new try? Because we love the library!
The Digital Commons, a new kind of co-working compound, has recently opened on the first floor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.
Digital Commons is a creativity incubator, and nothing like you’ve ever experienced from DCPL! Not just a computer lab, though it has more than 75 of those all loaded with software like Adobe Creative Suite, Digital Commons is a place to test, try, toil and triumph. Its meeting rooms, and gathering spaces for creativity and innovation, are enhanced by awesome ammenities like a digital bar to test drive tablets and e-readers, a Skype Station, video phone, 3-D printer and Espresso book machine!
Small organizations, groups — and enterprising individuals — should consider joining, especially as the only cost associated is a monthly one hour commitment to support the Dream Lab’s IT and digital literacy programming.
60 minutes in exchange for a free place to build and better your business? We sure do love the library!
