Exploration HUB at Dove Library

New Library Tech Lab Is Your Hub for Exploration

Our recently renovated Carlsbad City Library on Dove Lane has a new supercharged technology center called the "Exploration HUB," complete with Apple Mac computers, 3D printing and gadgets galore. This high tech sanctuary brings Carlsbad’s libraries into the future with a collaborative and creative environment tapping into the latest innovations in technology. Featured equipment includes:

  • Ten Mac Minis - software including Photoshop Elements 14, Garage Band, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, SketchUp and more
  • iMacs with Adobe Creative Suite - gleaming 27-inch displays, the full Adobe Creative Suite and professional audio and video editing software
  • Zeus 3D Printer - create 3-dimensional objects by scanning an existing object or printing from a design of your making
  • Arduino kits - explore the world of electronics and coding
  • Silhouette Cameo 2 Cutter - make intricate designs cut out of paper, cardstock, vinyl and fabric
  • Photo archiving center - scan old photos into a digital format
  • Video conversion tools - transfer those old VHS tapes to a DVD

Never heard of half this stuff? That's okay. We'll be hosting workshops and have staff on hand to help. For hours and more information, call 760-602-2038 or email librarian@carlsbadca.gov
