Cuyahoga County Public Library to celebrate renovation of Strongsville Branch 
New audiovisual recording studio to be dedicated in memory of Kathleen Cochrane DePiero

On Wednesday, March 28th at 5:30 PM, Cuyahoga County Public Library (CCPL) will hold a ceremony to dedicate the new audiovisual recording studio located in the Strongsville Branch in memory of Kathleen Cochrane DePiero, wife of CCPL Board of Trustees member Dean DePiero, who passed away unexpectedly in December. 

This event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Library staff will be on hand to give demonstrations of the new audio/video recording studio for the public. 

CCPL recently completed a $550,000 renovation of the Strongsville Branch that included the enclosure of the teen area to create a dedicated space for teens, installation of six new quiet study rooms and installation of the audiovisual recording studio. Features of the audiovisual recording studio include: 

  • Mac computers featuring Adobe Creative Suite, GarageBand audio recording software, Blackmagic Design ATEM and iMovie software
  • Microphones 
  • Keyboard
  • Video camera
  • Chroma key green screen wall
  • Chroma key green screen backdrop and stand
Visitors to the Strongsville Branch may access the audiovisual recording studio during regular library hours at no charge. Before visitors can use the studio, they must complete a required orientation session that will acquaint them with the equipment and software. Upcoming orientations will be held:  See Library Events for more orientation sessions in April.
