About Us

5,000 square feet of out-of-the box thinking.

The Gateway Innovation and Discovery Center is an open portal to connectivity and imagination. In addition to offering free access to high-speed internet, laptops, iPads, Samsung tablets, and a massive digital library, the center features open meeting  and work spaces that can be used for collaborative projects, concentrated problem-solving sessions, seminars, and presentations. We also offer educational programs to empower people of all ages with the tools and guidance needed to learn, create, explore, and invent with technology. 

Businesses, large and small, can gather their teams in high-tech workspaces to focus on strategic plans and business development.  State-of-the-art presentation spaces allow entrepreneurial spirits to best express the possibilities of their ideas and better connect to opportunity. A large training room is ideal for workforce development, seminars, and workshops.  And a Children’s Room serves education and entertainment in equally powerful portions.

The Gateway is also home to a 16′-by-5’ interactive discovery wall. One of only a handful in the Southeast, this wall presents a totally unique experience. Users can wander through the people and places from our communities, past and present, and discover interesting facts and hidden gems.
