The Chicago Public Library's YOUmedia programming offers middle and high school students opportunities to collaborate and create with digital media in an innovative physical space as well as through a vibrant online community. Workshops led by skilled librarians and mentors help teens pursue their passions more deeply, whether it's producing digital music or building robots. YOUmedia programs provide opportunities for teens with shared interests to come together to develop their skills and leadership abilities.

YOUmedia's digital equipment includes laptops, desktops, still and video cameras, an in-house recording studio, midi keyboards, drawing tablets, lighting equipment, a 3D printer and more.

Accessing YOUmedia programming is simple, and membership is free with a valid Chicago Public Library card.
