The City Library Digital Spaces aim to facilitate programs and equipment for the community which encourage development of lifelong learning and digital literacy, education and collaboration around new and emerging technologies. The community is encouraged to use the spaces to empower them to take advantage of new opportunities, and to meet new challenges as digital technology affects their world.
The Digital Hub offers a social environment where anyone in the community can participate and develop new skills. We offer group and one-on-one Computer training sessions as well as exciting community events such as Techxpo, with guest speakers and presenters from leading community groups and organisations. Training sessions cover a wide range of topics from Computer Basics to Social Media, Devices and Internet Basics.
The Innovation Lab’s aim is to explore and foster a social environment where anyone in the community can see, share, touch and play with cool technologies and talents at the forefront of global creativity. Come together to collaborate on ideas, drive programs and projects and learn from each other. Book a Maker Session or Drop-In for more information.
The History Hub creates an opportunity to connect with Adelaide’s past and record its present. The Hub includes the Adelaide Picture Collection which offers over 1000 photographs dating from the mid-19th Century. Among the images are views of City streets and buildings, parks and people, and various civic events, services and infrastructure. The History Hub has dedicated spaces at both the City Library and Tynte St Library. Other resources available are Trove and Ancestry Library Edition. The History Hub is also home to the Re-Live Adelaide Collection containing community images of the City of Adelaide streets and landmarks. You can contribute your images to the Re-Live Adelaide project at your nearest Adelaide Library centre.
The Media Lab is an exciting new space that the City Library is pleased to welcome the community into. The Media Lab is a place where digital masterpieces will be created and where the latest equipment and technology will bring to life documentaries, short films, animation, soundscapes, photography and graphic design. The Media lab includes two iMac computers which can each be reserved for independent use or you may prefer to work with a volunteer during a two hour one-on-one training session.
