The Resource Room was established in 2006 to be a free social and educational space featuring books, catalogues, periodicals, and digital media that focus on contemporary art and visual culture. A community bulletin board provides info about art events and exhibitions from local to international scenes, and free Wi-Fi access is available. The original room design was created by New York-based artist Charles Goldman.
