NCompass Live: Inspire Your Community with an Innovation Lab - Online 


Find out how a midsized county library turned a staff training area into a digital creativity space in 75 days with some money and a lot of ingenuity.

The Harford County (MD) Public Library Innovation Lab at the Abingdon Library is a digital media lab that provides sixth grade through adult community members opportunities to be creators of electronic video, audio, publishing, and 3D designs. The lab features 3 Macs, 3 PCs, 3 3D printers, and a green screen among the many pieces of equipment used to keep the lab relevant and useful. The Lab is open to the public and can be reserved for special projects. Hands-on training is offered to help maximize the use of the equipment and software. Through creative experiences in the Innovation Lab, our customers develop new skills, resources, and products that help to drive Harford County's economy forward.

Join the Project Manager and Former Lab Manager Maurice Coleman with a practical discussion about how HCPL turned an underused space into a magnet for public creativity.
