Project Teen Lounge

 Funded by a grant from the California State Library, San Leandro Public Library is excited to offer after-school programming for teens starting virtually in January 2021.

Twice-weekly programs from January to May will offer teens opportunities to learn from local artists, engage in life skills workshops, connect with a variety of professionals around college and career planning, complete STEM/design projects, and build teamwork skills through collaborative gaming. Programs are open to teens in grades 6-12
