Thanks to a generous bequest from Northbook resident Howard Peltz, the Collaboratory houses a set of two new rooms that form the Peltz Digital Suite: the Peltz Digitization Room and the Peltz Digital Media Lab.
The Digital Media Lab is an enclosed room with a green screen wall and outfitted with hardware and software designed to help users create and edit digital recordings (audio, movie, images, etc.).
You may make a day-of reservation with your library card by calling the Collaboratory at 847-272-2098. Guest passes are used for those without a card. Speak to staff in the Collaboratory when you arrive, and they will sign you into a room.
