Connecting our Community to
Free Public Access
All it takes to visit the Technology Engagement Center is a Linebaugh Library card. With this free card, members can participate in classes, take advantage of free WiFi and internet access and get help with internet research, including job research and applications. The opportunities for community growth and knowledge are endless at the TEC.
Small Business Meeting Rooms
The TEC will offer a number of small meeting rooms that are equipped to help people collaborate, explore, and ideate. Many rooms are versatile and can become a classroom, meeting room, or study lounge. Sponsored by the region’s most innovative businesses, these meeting rooms are more than just walls and furniture. They are inspiration incubators.
Access to Computers
The TEC offers dozens of Mac and PC computer work stations. Visitors will have access to current software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, CAD (Computer-Aided Drafting) and other software. Visitors can also seek instruction from Library staff on how to use the software.
ACCESS TO 3D PRINTING
3D Printing sounds magical. It even looks like magic. But the technology is real and accessible through the Linebaugh Library’s TEC. Friends can even watch your creation come to life through LiveStreaming on the web.
Whether it’s computer or crafts, the TEC focuses on developing the aptitude, intelligence, and inspiration of every child in our community. We believe that by providing the tools and a little direction, this upcoming generation will succeed in making the world a better place. Children can participate in group activities and individual learning at the TEC, most of which will be free of charge.
Technology and Innovation Classes
Technology is only as good as the knowledge of how to use it. A highly trained staff, combined with digital learning resources, help Visitors make the most of the available technology. Whether it’s composing a resume and submitting it online, designing a widget with our CAD software and watching it come to life with a 3D printer, or navigating the myriad of digital magazines available, Visitors can learn the skills, tricks, and tips necessary to succeed. Group and Individual classes will be scheduled throughout the year so that our community can continue to learn and grow.
