Teen Media Lab


Welcome to the Teen Media Lab where teens can explore and improve their media technology skills!

The Teen Media Lab is located in the Strba Teen Room on the 2nd floor of the Adriance Memorial Library.

Teens 12-18 years old may use the Teen Media Lab upon the completion of a Teen Room Access Form. Teens from outside of the Poughkeepsie Public Library District are welcome also.
