Zoom Rooms Now Available at the Library
February 1, 2023 | John Crockett
Washoe County Library is excited to announce the arrival of new Zoom ROOMs. These soundproof pods offer a private, connected workspace for virtual meetings, online interviews, and quiet or collaborative study. Designed by ROOM, Zoom ROOM pods are now available for use at multiple library locations on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Incline Village Public Library is a great space to work and study, and the Zoom Rooms allow people to attend a remote meeting or job interview without disturbing other patrons. Anyone can use the sound-proof room for up to 2 hours per day and it has been used for meetings, interviews, doctors appointments, as a recording booth, and as a quiet space to work or think. These rooms are in support of Washoe County Library System’s strategic plan goal of supporting workforce building by providing virtual spaces for job seekers, entrepreneurs, and anyone working remotely. The Zoom Room in use every day and patrons can stop by the Information Desk to sign up to use it.
One library user said, “The Zoom Room at Incline Village Library was a life saver for my 1.5 hour interview. Our house is too small and noisy to concentrate with young kids so thank you, thank, thank you for this space!”
Funds for this project have been provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records.
