Innovative Teen Center Open Seven Days/Week
The Mix at the SF Public Library’s Main Branch is an innovative,
youth-designed, 21st century teen learning space, and
now it has newly expanded hours. Previously closed on
Sundays and Mondays, The Mix is now open seven days a week.
Teens can drop by The Mix for coding classes, cooking demonstrations,
open mics, songwriting sessions, poetry slams, drum
lessons, 3-D printing workshops, book clubs and more. All activities
and services at The Mix are free.
The Mix provides 4,770- square feet of space and equipment
for youth ages 13-18 to explore, create and develop digital
media and computer skills and engage with the library’s traditional
books and materials. Outfitted with state-of-the-art
video and sound recording and computer equipment, teens are
able to expand their imaginations and technology and literacy
skills and engage in projects that promote critical thinking, inventiveness
and skill building.
