CreationStation

CreationStation is now open at the Palm Beach County Library. Explore, learn, create pictures, words, film, or music, and share your voice with the community.

    Creation Station includes:
  • A digital media lab in the library to create content: video, audio, podcasts, and image editing.
  • Orientations and information on how to use the equipment in CreationStation and how to share your work on the web.
  • The CreationStation website to share and showcase created content.

CreationStation is located at the Main branch of the Palm Beach County Library at 3650 Summit Boulevard in West Palm Beach. The lab opens at the same time as the library and remains open until a half hour before library closing time. The lab is open to Palm Beach County residents ages 18 and up (children and teens must be accompanied by a responsible adult). Read the complete list of usage guidelines. To reserve for a 2-hour session, contact the Main Library Serials Desk at 561 233-2600.
