McMillan Memorial Library is proud to present the McMillan Digital Media Studio to our community. This space was created with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through a Library Services and Technology Act grant award and is further supported by the Library's Endowment Fund.
We created this space to inspire our community members to explore their creativity by providing digital tools for projects in video, sound, photography as well as website and app design. In addition we have been able to provide fabrication tools in the form of 3D printers to allow people to create tangible objects from computer designs. The Studio doubles as a training and program space. McMillan’s subscription to Gale Courses
provides training support for the Adobe Creative Cloud software loaded on the computers in the Studio. The training tables, computers, 3D printers and other equipment are all mobile, so that they can be used elsewhere in the Library. See our Studio Tour
for a look at the space and equipment.
The Studio is adjacent to the Fine Arts Center, which is equipped with professional level sound and lighting. The ability to transition from a performance space to post-production facilities is unique among American libraries.
While the space is open to all community members our special focus is on our local youth. For them we have created unique learning and growth opportunities allowing them to explore their interests, volunteer their skill sets and create community content.
The McMillan Media Studio provides the space, training and tools needed to take on almost any creative endeavor. Here is just a sampling.
