The Melrose Center

Photo Studio Flight Simulator

Through a generous gift from the Kendrick B. Melrose Family Foundation, the Library developed the Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center for Technology, Innovation and Creativity. The Melrose Center is a 26,000-square-foot digital technology center located on the second floor of the Orlando Public Library. In addition to technology-related classes, it offers audio, video and photography studios along with simulators (flight, driving, construction), a fab lab with 3D printers and a large interactive media wall. There are also other services such as access to a conference room, printing and a wireless multi-display presentation gateway that presents wirelessly using laptops and mobile devices.
