Anyone interested in the Scribe Video Center spaces may contact the Media Center Manager (, however, the spaces cannot be used for events that are primarily commercial. An on-site manager must be scheduled to provide building over-site during event to set-up and clean-up.

With its large screen, projector and sound system, this is an ideal spot for a meeting, a lecture or a screening. It accommodates 50 in lecture-style seating at a flat-floor set-up. It can also be arranged with seminar or conference tables.


Events may be held from 6:00 PM to midnight. Scribe-sponsored educational programs and co-sponsored events have first priority for the use of Scribe's space. Smoking is not permitted in the Scribe Video Center. Food and beverages are not allowed outside of the rental spaces.
