Our public computer lab offers public drop-in and member drop-in hours, as well as educational programs
At CCTV we strongly believe that providing the tools to create media enhances citizens' ability to participate in civic life. In 1996, CCTV opened computerCENTRAL, a state-of-the art community technology center, to accomplish this goal. Now located in the heart of Central Square at 438 Massachusetts Ave., CCTV offers dozens of hours of individualized drop-in computer help each week. Skilled and friendly CCTV interns are available during every lab session. Users can receive hands-on help with their computer needs, including the basics of getting on the internet, word-processing, graphic design, video editing, web media, and much more. On this page, you will find information about our hours, special programs, and other community media & technology opportunities for CCTV members.
