The LAB is one of the newest spaces in the library, created as part of the developing iConnect Centre on the 2nd floor. This multi-purpose room allows us to welcome the community to an environment in which they can learn, discover, experience, and grow, together.
The LAB is a flexible space, configured with the following:
- 12 Windows computer stations (2 per table)
- 1 instructor computer
- Microsoft Office including Word, Excel and PowerPoint
- High resolution 80” Sharp Aquos wall-mount monitor
- Prologue AS106 commercial speakers
- A cable caddy with HDMI and VGA cables for easy connection with your tablet or laptop
During the summer, 2019 we are activating the LAB by experimenting with delivery of a variety of different kinds of technology classes. This is helping library staff become acquainted with the equipment and technology that is available, while also helping to assess how best to serve the community through this new space. When not in use for programs, customers are invited into the space to make use of the computers that are available.
Note: The LAB is currently unavailable for booking
Beginning Fall, 2019 we will begin work to coordinate access for community agencies and groups who wish to use the lab to facilitate their own training or learning experiences. Details about booking and reserving the lab for these purposes will follow in coming months.
For a list of upcoming programs in the LAB, see the computers and technology classes on our Events Calendar.
