Feb 06 2016
2nd Anniversary of the Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center for Technology, Innovation & Creativity.

The Orange County Library System invites Central Floridians to experience the award-winning Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center for Technology, Innovation & Creativity. A Second Anniversary celebration will be held on Saturday, February 6 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Activities, demonstrations and entertainment will be available for children and adults to enjoy. Take a tour and check out this state-of-the-art facility.


In addition, the winners of the Second Annual Melrose Awards will be announced. Dozens of applicants submitted their creative projects for consideration. Submissions were created entirely or in part thanks to the technology and equipment available through the Melrose Center. Categories include Film, Audio, Maker (3D Design, Engineering, Electronics), Gaming Design & Programming, and Photography & Graphic Design. A winner in each category will be announced as well as the overall Grand Prize winner, who will receive $1000. The Melrose Awards is sponsored in part by the Friends of the Orange County Library System.


The Melrose Center was made possible through a generous gift from the Kendrick B. Melrose Family Foundation. This 26,000-square-foot digital technology center is located on the second floor of the Orlando Public Library in downtown Orlando. 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.
