Dear Do Space Community,
I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you all! Our journey to provide innovative technology, learning opportunities, and community engagement has taken a remarkable step forward. I am delighted to announce our successful move into the Milton R. Abrahams Library from our previous location. The transition was seamless and a testament to the strong partnership we have built with the Omaha Public Library.
Moving an entire technology library may sound daunting, but with the collective efforts of our dedicated team and the enthusiastic support from our community, the process was both smooth and efficient. The Abrahams Library staff welcomed us with open arms, and their warm reception truly made us feel at home. It’s heartwarming to witness the synergy between our teams, united by a common goal of fostering learning, creativity, and collaboration.
One of the most exciting aspects of our move is the infusion of new technology into the Omaha Public Library system. Our commitment to empowering the community with cutting-edge tools and technology remains unwavering. Among the exciting additions is our state-of-the-art embroidery machine, designed to unleash your artistic potential and bring your creative visions to life. Whether you’re a seasoned designer or just starting, this technology is bound to inspire your imagination.
We’ve also set up a top-notch podcast studio tailored for those who wish to dive into the world of audio storytelling. Podcasting has become a powerful medium for sharing ideas, stories, and experiences. With our studio, you’ll have the means to bring your narratives to life, and we can’t wait to see the incredible content our community will create.
I encourage every one of you to join us on this exciting journey. We’re eagerly looking forward to offering various classes and workshops catering to all interests and skill levels. From coding and robotics to graphic design and podcasting, there’s something for everyone. Our shared passion for learning and growth drives us, and we can’t wait to share this enthusiasm with you.
In conclusion, I want to thank the Omaha Public Library staff for their warmth, hospitality, and genuine collaboration. We are poised to create an Omaha where technology, creativity, and community converge excitingly. The future is bright, and we invite you to be a part of it.
Director, Do Space
