About Level Up

About

Have an urge to create something? Whether it's a podcast, song, movie, flyer, 3D print, or something else, we have you covered!

Level Up is an all-ages digital creativity center for video and music production, graphic and web design, memory preservation, 3D printing, and coding and game creation. It is located on the first floor of the Downtown Library and features a video production studio with a green screen, two audio production studios, and four digital creativity workstations with Adobe Creative Cloud.

 

Reserving the Video and Audio Production Studios

The studios are available for 60, 90, or 120-minute reservations with a maximum occupancy of two people at a time. Reservations are released after 15 minutes of the scheduled start time if the user has not arrived. You can make a reservation for the same day, or the next day, but no further in advance. After you're through with your reserved studio time, if there's still availability you can make another reservation for the same day, otherwise, only one active reservation is allowed per day. Stop by Level Up on the first floor of the Downtown Library to reserve a production studio or reserve your space online with your library card.

 

Reserving Computers

There are four iMacs and two MacBook Pros available for two-hour reservations with a library card. These computers are for media creation only. You can log in to any Digital Creativity Workstation at Level Up. When all workstations are in use, you may reserve the next available one. Priority is given to those using the workstations for creative purposes. While consuming media (surfing the web, watching videos) is permitted, you may be asked to move to a different area if all computers are full.
