Teen Tech Center at the Adams Street Library Annex

The Teen Tech Center at The Annex offers teens FREE access to laptops (including MacBooks), cutting-edge technology and software, and collaborative areas for getting creative!


The Teen Tech Center at the Annex is more than just an interactive learning environment where teens can experiment with technology. It’s also a space to be creative, learn at your own pace, socialize with peers, meet professionals in the field of tech, and acquire skills for everyday life.

Teens ages 13–18 are encouraged to explore technology with their imaginations. Use the space to make art, music, animation, 3D objects, jewelry, fashion creations and beyond. To join the Teen Tech Center, go to the Annex and ask to talk with a staff member.
