Connecting our Community to

Free Public Access

All it takes to visit the Technology Engagement Center is a Linebaugh Library card. With this free card, members can participate in classes, take advantage of free WiFi and internet access and get help with internet research, including job research and applications. The opportunities for community growth and knowledge are endless at the TEC.


Small Business Meeting Rooms

The TEC will offer a number of small meeting rooms that are equipped to help people collaborate, explore, and ideate. Many rooms are versatile and can become a classroom, meeting room, or study lounge. Sponsored by the region’s most innovative businesses, these meeting rooms are more than just walls and furniture. They are inspiration incubators.

Access to Computers

The TEC offers dozens of Mac and PC computer work stations. Visitors will have access to current software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, CAD (Computer-Aided Drafting) and other software. Visitors can also seek instruction from Library staff on how to use the software.


ACCESS TO 3D PRINTING

3D Printing sounds magical. It even looks like magic. But the technology is real and accessible through the Linebaugh Library’s TEC. Friends can even watch your creation come to life through LiveStreaming on the web.

Children’s Area

Whether it’s computer or crafts, the TEC focuses on developing the aptitude, intelligence, and inspiration of every child in our community. We believe that by providing the tools and a little direction, this upcoming generation will succeed in making the world a better place. Children can participate in group activities and individual learning at the TEC, most of which will be free of charge.


Technology and Innovation Classes

Technology is only as good as the knowledge of how to use it. A highly trained staff, combined with digital learning resources, help Visitors make the most of the available technology. Whether it’s composing a resume and submitting it online, designing a widget with our CAD software and watching it come to life with a 3D printer, or navigating the myriad of digital magazines available, Visitors can learn the skills, tricks, and tips necessary to succeed. Group and Individual classes will be scheduled throughout the year so that our community can continue to learn and grow.

ANNOUNCING THE TECHNOLOGY ENGAGEMENT CENTER

For the past two years, the Linebaugh Public Library System has been working on plans for a technology engagement center [TEC], an innovative approach not widely found. Working with the City of Murfreesboro, Rutherford County, and the Christy Houston Foundation, what began as a dream is now one step closer to becoming a reality. “We are thankful to both our public and private partners for their financial support and for their forward thinking and planning. We strongly believe that this public Technology Engagement Center will enhance workforce development for our citizens through training opportunities and will become a primary avenue to on-line job research and applications. The TEC will also bridge much of the gap between technology and education that exists in parts of our community. This “shelfless” electronic library will provide something for almost every citizen in our community, and we believe it will become a model for other public libraries across our state and nation,” stated Gary Green, Library Board Vice-Chair and Chair of the TEC Committee.

According to a recent report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation (an advocacy group for disadvantaged children and families), in the United States, 84% of all households with children in low-income inner city neighborhoods do not have computers. LPLS’s concept is to create a “digital” center filled with a variety of computers and other electronic devices (e-readers, iPads, etc.); study/meeting rooms for students and small businesses; and training and computer classes. The center will also be a valuable resource for healthcare research, digital connection to insurance benefits/payments, and even application to the Affordable Care Act. The TEC will be located on the Hobgood Elementary School campus with plans to be open to the public within the next 18 months.
