The Studio Lab Express is alive and well at the Juanita E. Thornton/Shepherd Park Library during the renovation of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, although the new manager of the branch, Melinda MacCall, has called it the “lite” version.
The audiovisual lab, which opened on May 8, is located in a former conference room off the foyer, and it offers individual access by appointment and various classes throughout the week. Adobe Creative Suite drop-in sessions cover Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Illustrator and After Effects and are scheduled on Wednesday and Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. Photoshop Basics is available Wednesdays at 7 p.m. and Video Basics on Saturdays at 1 p.m. To register or check for future calendar events, go to dclibrary.org and click on “Events and Classes” at the top. This is a real addition to our branch library.
The summer reading program will kick off on June 1 and will offer children, teens and adults a chance to record their reading experiences. There are many new faces at the branch, so introduce yourself and get to know these helpful library workers.
