"We believe the Library can be a transformative place for teens. It's one of the few places where they can learn about the world in a safe environment where they aren't being evaluated. Many Pittsburgh area teens have no computer access at home, aren't involved in sports and don't have an after school place where they feel accepted. The teen spaces offer a haven where kids can learn technology, practice social skills and receive help from caring mentors. It's a relaxed and supportive space. When you see the kids there, laughing and engaged with their peers and adults, you know they are learning great life skills. It's hugely gratifying."
