About the Program

Youth Hubs run in the library after school as a safe space for all youth, ages 13-19. You can spend your time doing homework with tutors, hanging out, playing board or video games, and participating in events, programs and workshops. Many of the activities make use of the technology that the Youth Hub owns, including laptops, digital cameras, DJ equipment, and Virtual Reality (VR) headsets.

"Great environment to talk to people and make friends. I get to learn from staff, try new activities, get free snacks, and have a good time."
- Hakan, Youth Hub participant

Equipment

Use our laptops, iPads, MacBooks, digital cameras, DJ equipment, Virtual Reality (VR) headsets, gaming equipment (PlayStation, Xbox and Wii), board games, and more!
