    We've just added an Apple iMac workstation loaded with Adobe Creative Suite 6, which includes Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, and Dreamweaver. The new Digital Media Lab has an Epson photo/film scanner, Wacom tablet, a Focusrite Scarlett 2-input soundcard, and a Nikon D3100 DSLR. You can use it to create movies, graphics, and audio, scan old photos, create webpages, and more. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for funding the DML with monies raised in the 2012 Annual Appeal.

    If you're interested in learning more, we are holding drop-in introduction sessions every Wednesday in October from 6-8pm! Bring your questions and get setup so you can use the DML.
