Professional Space with Top-Quality AV for the Budget-Minded in South Fulton
Everything you expect from a professional conference center – open for use by the community. Pro tip: make sure you have your library card.
The Wolf Creek Branch of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System is a hidden jewel – if you don’t live in South Fulton, that is. Residents were (and are) ecstatic to have a new, state-of-the art library right in their neighborhood. A new library brought equipment, reading rooms, comfort and free WiFi along with it. And the best part for South Fulton freelancers and solopreneurs? High quality meeting space that fits in the bootstrapping budget.
Provided you have an AFPLS library card, the meeting and study rooms are available for reservations by anyone under one condition:
Events held at the library must be free and open to the public. These are community spaces, and if you must charge for your event – hold it somewhere else. They will crack down hard, and you may find yourself banned from using a meeting room again.
If you can meet that condition, you can enjoy generous space, a SMART podium with plug-n-play for your laptop (or you may use the PC provided), video conferencing, with zero parking hassles.
Two things about WiFi in the library – I’ve found it to be consistent, but Google and its services don’t care for its minimal security. Big G blocked access to a number of my products (GMail, Keep, Search) while on their network. When I switched to cell data and my hotspot, all was well. The other thing is more of an annoyance: you have to reconnect every 30 minutes. When working on a project (or a blog post) that can get really frustrating. On the other hand, if you’re presenting from your laptop or flash drive, it won’t be an issue. Overall, the value is definitely there. Enjoy!
