iLABs offer everyone the chance to use state-of-the-art technology to design, create and imagine a variety of projects of all kinds.
iLABs contain technology and equipment not accessible for most residents due to high costs or availability. Now, residents will be able to work on projects during business hours.
The Library features online tutorials to help people get acquainted with technology, and staff can assist visitors in getting started and direct them to appropriate resources.

Free use of equipment and software
All iLAB equipment and software is available for public use, free of charge.
Bring your own supplies
Many pieces of equipment will require you to bring your own supplies, such as fabric for use with the sewing machine. Work cannot be saved to library computers, so bring an external drive or storage device or be prepared to upload to a cloud-based service. For 3D printing, the library will supply the filament material needed to print your 3D model.
You don’t always need a library card
Most equipment doesn’t require a library card.
You will need a library card to use the following:
- Wireless keyboard and mouse for Mac computers
- Audio/video production pieces
You will need a library card and a driver’s license or state ID to use the following:
- GoPro camera
- Creative drawing tablet
iLAB workstations can be reserved for use during most library open hours, but will close 30 minutes before library closing time, so staff can do maintenance and assist in other areas of the building.
Take a tour
To enquire about tours for individuals or groups, please call the library of the iLAB location you’d like to visit. Tours can be given during most iLAB open times if staff is available. Find hours and locations.
