The Board of the Walla Walla Public Library, Beth Hudson, library director, and Jeffrey Townsend, media lab director, are inviting all y’all to the grand opening of the library’s media lab, CrewSpace.

The “bold new opportunity for media creators of all ages” and the event celebrating it are at the library, 238 E. Alder St., from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Friday.

Treats, sweets and a tour of CrewSpace are on tap. There will be demonstrations of its state-of-the-art technology and attendees can check out the classes and programs.

“Discover where Walla Walla’s kids will be going after school every day,” said Beth in a release. The new space was made possible by a grant from The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.

Assistance with the event comes from Friends of the Walla Walla Public Library, Colville Street Patisserie and The Sultan’s Secret.

The community is encouraged to attend the third annual senior recognition ceremony for students in the Advancement Via Individual Determination program at Walla Walla High School. It will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Wa-Hi commons.
