A New Library in Omaha, Nebraska has no room for Books but Technology for all

From professionals working on Photoshop to senior citizens making calls on FaceTime for the first time, Do Space library has something to engage all age groups

  • A new Digital Library ‘Do Space’ offers memberships to everyone for absolutely no cost at all
  • Free availability of latest technologies and programs- Photoshop, 3D printers and laser cutters 
  • A separate space for toddlers to play and learn at the same time

Omaha, Nebraska has seen the inauguration of arguably the coolest library in town, and probably the whole of United States in November last year. Funded by generous philanthropists through the non-profit organization Heritage Services, this public library, like all other public libraries, offers memberships to everyone for absolutely no cost at all.

With an interactive video wall that draws visitors’ attention as they walk in for the first time, this digital library houses a state-of-the-art 3-D Lab, a Youth Program Room, a large Computer Lab area with work stations where people usually walk in and find their way around the computers, and a separate space for toddlers to play and learn at the same time, explains Rebecca Stavick, Executive Director at Do Space.

“Do Space is a lot of things – it’s a community tech library, a makerspace, a computer lab, and a community coworking space, all with ultrafast WiFi and free tech learning for everyone,” says Stavick. “I’ve always thought of libraries as places full of tools. Books are tools, scrolls are tools, computers are tools.” From professionals working on Photoshop to senior citizens making calls on FaceTime for the first time, Do Space library has something to engage all age groups.

 

Computer Programmer Hans Bekale runs his multimedia business from this library. The modern day workspace, that comes for no price at all, is every developer’s dream, he says. High school student Frank Fu uses the laser cutter and 3-D printer to design the jewelry that he sells online. According to him, Do Space Library has the most diverse people with the most diverse ideas.
