What is it?

Martin County Library System's Digital Literacy Lab
The idea lab at the Cummings Library in Palm City is our hub for technological exploration, hands-on learning, and digital video, photo and audio creation.

Why are we offering this?


For the past two decades, MCLS has offered basic technology instruction in the form of computer classes that have enabled our users to access and evaluate information. The equipment and volunteers in the idea lab will further empower our users by providing the tools necessary to create and share original multimedia content.

What's available?

We have chosen to equip this new space with iMac computers, iPads, iPods, digital cameras, scanners, and easy to use software such as iMovie, iPhoto, GarageBand. We will also provide access to the Adobe Master Collection:

These tools will allow our users to create digital photo projects, professional quality videos and animations, webpages, mobile applications, original music, and much more!

May I borrow any of this?

YES! We will allow cardholders to take an iPod Touch or digital camera home over a 24 hour period. The iPads, preloaded with digital editing and educational applications, will be available for in-library use as well! Also available for use in the idea lab and Studio are Galaxy tablets, a MacBook Air, scanners, headphones, microphones, webcams, USB hubs, MIDI audio input and a green screen!  And if you have been here and used the idea lab, we invite you to tell us what you think.
