GCPL’s Learning Labs are community makerspaces located at the Centerville, Duluth, Five Forks, Hamilton Mill, Lilburn, Peachtree Corners, and Suwanee branches, and opening soon in our Norcross branch. The Learning Labs are spaces to create, collaborate, and share digital content. If you are a videographer, graphic designer, creative professional, hobbyist or artist, the Learning Lab has the software and equipment to turn your vision into reality.

In the Learning Labs, you can create and share music, podcasts, video and photography content with our collection of audiovisual equipment. You can design digital and printable graphics for your business with our Wacom digital drawing tablets and the full Adobe Creative Suite. Make your cosplay dreams and product ideas a reality with our 3D printers, sewing machines, CNC machines and laser cutter. Your imagination is the architect in the Learning Labs.

Learning Labs are exclusively reserved for customers wishing to use the specialized equipment or software. Quiet rooms and meeting room spaces are also available for individual and small group use.
