Studio 170 is one of the first free recording spaces made available to residents in the State of Connecticut.

It is comprised of two recording spaces: one for audio recording and another for video recording. Studio 170 offers Connecticut residents the opportunity to work with quality equipment and to practice getting started with the production process.

Studio 170 was generously funded by the Friends of the Danbury Library.

Studio Use

All You Need…

  • Active Connecticut library card in good standing
  • Valid state-issued photo ID
  • Must be over the age of 17 and present during the studio session
  • A large-capacity (16GB or more) flash drive if you wish to save your work
What to Expect
Patrons can check in for their studio reservation at the information desk on the Junior Floor.

A 1TB flash drive is available for check-out if necessary.

The Danbury Library staff cannot provide one-on-one assistance on demand in the recording studio.

Some proficiency in using computers and recording devices is expected to achieve results.
