We're excited to expand YOUmedia high school events to six CPL locations with generous funds from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation through the Chicago Public Library Foundation and the City of Chicago's 2014 budget investment.
Located in diverse communities around the city, the new sites will offer either weekly or biweekly events with CPL teen library staff.
The six branches are:
Starting July 15, at these locations teens 14 to 18 will be able to explore new technologies such as Silhouette vinyl cutters for maker activities, Photoshop Creative Suite and an assortment of audio production hardware and software. This exciting programming will enable teens to build their technology, making and digital skills to enhance their lives and future careers.
For more information, talk to the teen staff at one of the branches and discover something new!
YOUmedia is partially funded by the The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation through the Chicago Public Library Foundation.
