CCPL’s New Sound Lab to Rock

Local musicians, mixing engineers, podcasters, audio historians and more have a new place to make professional-grade sound recordings — the public library.

Campbell County Libraries recently launched its innovative Sound Lab, a study room that also serves as a recording studio in the Reference Department of the Gillette Branch, is one of the first of its kind in Northeast Wyoming.

The creative space and equipment includes professional-grade audio mixers, microphones, headphones, software and hardware for recording, dubbing and editing, and more.

Visitors from Campbell, Crook and Westin County residents are invited to use the free lab by appointment for four-hour sessions, and software training is available.

“We’re hoping to see people develop their talents here,” Kyouhee Choi Berger, CCPL reference services librarian said.

The project, which began in 2019 as a part of the library system’s goal of developing makerspaces, cost approximately $18,000, funded by a grant from Wyoming Community Foundation.
