10 Years in the Digital Creation Space

Our first Digital Creation Space (DCS) opened at Haggard Library in 2014 with classes to learn about photo, audio and video editing. Over the past ten years, we have expanded this service to three locations: Haggard, Harrington and Parr libraries.

Each DCS has computers with digital creation software, such as Adobe Creative Cloud and Unity, and hardware like cameras, microphones and even a Cricut machine! The DCS is for ages 13 and up, and requires a Plano Public Library card. There is no charge to use this space. Read the policy, view the equipment list and reserve the DCS on our website.
