Poughkeepsie, NY: MediaLab

Invite only


The Poughkeepsie Public Library District’s MediaLab will be a physical and online space where youth will get together to engage with media technology and with adult mentors in order to explore their interests and improve their skills. The physical space will be a dedicated Teen Room in the main library where youth currently gather to play electronic games, find books and DVDs, and use computers. The library district will partner with the Children's Media Project, IBM, and a group of teen advisors to plan and design a space and a selection of activities. Teens will also use a social networking space to post their projects, exchange ideas, and share their ideas with teens in other communities. Because of the main library’s proximity to the library system offices, the project offers an excellent opportunity to serve as a pilot program that can eventually serve a regional need.
