Have you heard about Do Space? This is an amazing new facility in Omaha with $3 million dollar in technology. Best part, is the public gets FREE access to the hardware, software and ultrafast gigabit bandwidth internet. This new center on the corner of 72nd and Dodge (former Borders bookstore) has many amazing features and most are provided at no charge to the public.

If you have kids or teens, you will definitely want to check out their dedicated teen space and children’s area. We visited for their grand opening and all three of my kids had a blast using the technology!
