San Fransisco Public Library Recieves Funds for Digital Learning Lab

The Institute of Museum and Library Services and the MacArthur Foundation recently announced the San Francisco Public Library as one of the dozen learning institutes that will receive funds to create a digital learning lab for middle and high school students.

Together, the two foundations will put $100,000 towards planning and designing the space, while the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library will add another $20,000 to the fund.

“San Francisco Public Library already plays a central role in the lives of our city’s youth, as a safe, nurturing place to congregate for after school activities, find homework help and enjoy access to innovative programs and technology,” said City Librarian Luis Herrera. “With this grant we will be able to fully engage teens in the digital and online environment.”

Together with the Bay Area Video Coalition, the California Academy of Sciences and KQED, the library will create a center that aims to teach adolescents to understand and use technology and media production tools, as well as to boost their creativity.

Other labs will be built in museums in Texas, Oregon, New York and Pennsylvania, and libraries in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Tennessee, Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado and Maryland.
