Special thanks to the Digital Commons for hosting the meeting!

Digital Commons (http://dclibrary.org/digitalcommons)
The Digital Commons is located on the first floor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. While it houses more than 70 computers, the Digital Commons is not just a computer lab: It offers computers loaded with software like the Adobe Creative Suite; access to tools like a 3-D printer and an Espresso book machine; and enhanced meeting rooms and gathering spaces aimed at encouraging creation and innovation.

The Digital Commons meeting rooms are spaces that can be reserved through our online reservation system. The larger Dream Lab collaborative space can be reserved by members.
