Do Space: Technology library of the future here now

tehrafinn-jackson

Do Space is a place of the future; a space where all of the current technology is available for everyone. You don’t have to be skilled in technology or own all of the Apple products in the world to enjoy the innovative facility.

Do Space is the new Omaha technology library located on the southwest corner of 72nd and Dodge in the former Borders building. It officially opened November 7, 2015 and it’s open everyday from 9 AM to 9 PM. As you enter, you can see rows and rows of computers. With free-access to 219 desktop computers, laptops, and tablets all equipped with the up-to-date software, applications including Adobe and Microsoft. The open wi-fi makes it easy to bring your own devices in and work on whatever you want.

Much to “Do” at Do Space: The new technology library on the corner of 72nd and Dodge has a modern yet welcoming atmosphere. It opened last November and provides all of the up-to-date technologies. Do Space is run by Heritage Services and launched with private donations. photo by therefinn-jackson

One of the greatest aspects for students is the teen room. This is a special space designed for youth so that they can check out laptops, finish a project, or go to play games. The abstract design and cool furniture draw all eyes in. It’s a fun spot for groups or just a place to study alone after school, and with a Dunkin’ Donuts located in the same building, sugar highs and caffeine-filled study sessions just got more convenient.

The only thing in the building that needs to be paid for is the printing, specifically the 3D printing. The 3D lab has 3D printers, a 3D scanner, and a laser cutter. The 3D printing only costs $3 per cubic-inch, which is a deal for the new face of printing. All you have to do is send in a design and a member of the staff will help you print it. Simple, easy, and enabling.
I highly recommend trying out the library. All you need is a current Do Space membership card. It can be applied for online or in person and you can pick it up at the front desk. It is easy to lose yourself and spend hours in the facility. They wipe all of the computers and laptops clean at the end of the day so make sure to bring a flash drive to save any work. It really opens up technology to everyone in the city, offering the facilities and equipment to go out and “Do.”
