With school in full swing, parents and teachers alike may wish to take advantage of a wonderful resource, the KCSOS Materials Lab inside The Learning Center at 2020 K Street, downtown. Users have access to computers, a scanner, laminators, overhead projectors, button and book binding machines, theme boxes to augment traditional and special education instruction, and some 695 die shapes and 18 fonts. The lab is open to schools, clubs, businesses and the general public at an hourly cost of $5. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the school year, it is open one evening per month until 8 p.m. For safety reasons, please make other arrangements for infants and children under ten while working in the lab.
