ICPL offers Adobe Creative Suite access

by Meredith Hines-Dochterman on June 7th, 2017

Need to design a logo, create a video, edit a photo or make a flyer but lack the software to do so?

The Iowa City Public Library is now offering patrons access to Adobe Creative Suite licenses in the computer lab. The suite features Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Dreamweaver, and many other Adobe products to help you complete your digital project.

Patrons who want to complete or begin projects are welcome to use the software whenever the library is open and the computer lab is not in use. Check calendar.icpl.org or call 319-356-5200 regarding availability.

To access the software, patrons need to check-in at the Page Station on the second floor so the room can be unlocked. Patrons who want to try the software but do not have a working knowledge of it can access tutorials online through the Library’s Learning Express database, use a book from the collection, or use Adobe’s built in help forum.

This summer, the Iowa City Public Library will host creative workshops every Wednesday from 5 to 6 p.m. in the second floor Computer Lab. The first workshop will be held on Wednesday, June 7. The series will continue through August.

During this time, a librarian will be available to help patrons with a variety of digital projects. Computers with Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and other popular Adobe Creative Suite products will be available for use. Participants are encouraged to bring photos for editing, ideas for logos, clips to create a movie, or other digital files that need finessing.
