The City’s new multimedia lab opens to the public today! Located on the second floor of the Community Center (7500 Maple Avenue), residents will have access to the latest Mac computers, word processing and editing software. Utilizing this equipment will allow residents, including teens and young adults, to experiment with top-of-the-line hardware and produce professional work of the highest quality at your own pace. Even better, trained staff will be available to assist in various skill-building capacities using Apple’s featured software to include Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Suite, Garage Band, iMovie and a host of others.

The primary aim of opening the MacLab after school is to facilitate the academic success of our youth, increase communication skills and help build technical skills that will last a lifetime. This is one of many efforts the City is undertaking in order to advance the City Council’s priorities regarding youth success.

Hours of operation will be Monday – Wednesday, and Friday from 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Saturday from 12:00-5:00 PM. The Media Lab will be closed on Thursdays and Sundays. For more information, please contact John Webster, Facilities Manager, at 301-891-7225 or
