San Antonio Central Library kicked off the celebration of their 20th anniversary with a brand-new 6,000 square foot space offering youth an upgrade from outdated educational tools to advanced technology expertise for their future.

Led by professional library staff, teens will enjoy out-of-school learning opportunities to engage in a variety of cutting-edge activities specifically geared to prepare teens for college and employment, according to a Central Library press release.

Staff will be available to help with blogging, podcast, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) materials, and many emerging technologies, all to be featured on their SAPL Teen Blog.
