The Inspiration Lab

Coming in spring of 2021, we will be opening Vernon branch's brand new creation space, The Inspiration Lab. Featuring equipment and tools for hands-on projects, digital media creation, and exploring and learning new technology. Our recording studio will not be available until a later date due to COVID 19, but our Creation Stations, Cricut cutter and Digitization Stations will open in the spring.
