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.
