Studio Kids

Phased Reopening Plan

Our Digital Studios are not open during this phase of the reopening plan, but our Youth Services Staff would like to hear from you if there are ways we can help you with your digital projects. The best person to contact is Ann, via e-mail

Studio Kids is a space for children, grades 8 and under, to create and edit digital projects. The studio has a variety of hardware and software tools to help kids develop their projects. For project ideas, visit our digital studios tutorials page.
