The Labs @ CLP

Teens learn best when their learning is connected to their passions, desires and curiosities.

Teens can be content creators at the Library! Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Teenspaces provide teens with access to equipment, software and supportive staff in an innovative learning environment with a focus on creation – teens can make a movie, build a robot, learn photography, create music and more.


The Labs Summer Skills Intensives are designed and led, with teen input, by staff members and cover a specific topic while providing the necessary training to create something new. These week-long experiences are an opportunity for teens to explore new mediums and ways to be creative in a supportive learning environment. You can learn more about these annual workshops here.

Recording Studios

The Teenspaces at several CLP locations―Allegheny, East Liberty, and Main―offer recording studio space in the form of recording booths or mobile recording stations. These resources are available to teens only (grades 6 – 12, ages 12 – 19) and participants must earn a Recording ‘badge’ before using the equipment.
