Due to the generosity of the Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation, patrons can now have a meeting, conference, or webinar in the high-tech Foundation Room on the second floor.
The room seats 10 and is equipped with a Windows 7 computer with a 50” monitor and webcam. The table includes built-in power and monitor (HDMI) connections for patron devices.
Business Librarian Joe Collier recently used the room to present a webinar.
“Compared to working from a cubicle, cramped office meeting room or noisy coffee shop, the Foundation Room–with its tech-savvy setup and calm, comfortable atmosphere–is the perfect environment for conducting video conferences, Skype interviews, giving webinars or simply hosting a professional meeting.”
Use of the Foundation Room is limited to an individual, a business or group needing to use the equipment available in the room. Permitted usage includes: online conferencing, technology-based collaboration, viewing online webinars, online interviews, and presentations.
Reservations for the Foundation Room can only be made by MPPL cardholders and may be made up to a month in advance with no minimum number of people. Noncardholders can use the room on a walk-in basis only. Use of the room is restricted to patrons age 18 and older. Click here for more information and for our conference room policy.
