Orlando Public Library, 101 E. Central Blvd., 407-835-7323

While some may argue libraries were a last-century kind of thing, the Orange County Library System's Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center proves it's anything but. Located in the main branch in the heart of downtown, the Center offers anyone with a library card the opportunity to work in a video production studio, photo studio, fabrication lab, audio production studio or a simulator lab. This one-stop shop for all your STEM needs proves libraries are the learning centers of the present and the future.
