The Vancouver Public Library has always been very forward thinking when it comes to implementing features that people want. They have one of the largest e-book and audiobook collections in Canada and have just opened up a new recording studio for the general public to use.
For anyone living in Vancouver, the public library has implemented six “Inspiration Labs” which are basically professionally setup studios that can be used to record videos, or allow indie authors to narrate their own audiobooks. .They have green screens, professional microphones and other recording equipment. These are FREE to use for up to three hours a day! You can find out more and book time if you’d like here and check out some of the professional setups they have here.
