YouMedia at the Chicago Public Library


“Eleven months ago, Julia and Connie approached us and said ‘We have this idea, and we think that Chicago Public Library might have the same vision we do for how you take digital media and you incorporate it into a wider learning opportunity for kids and for teens.’ And what you see tonight, eleven months later, is that creation come to fruition.” – Mary A. Dempsey, Commissioner, Chicago Public Library

This video introduces the YouMedia project, and shows how the library can be reimagined as a site for media creation and self-motivated learning and expression through digital media.
