All year long, WKYC will be spotlighting Girls in STEM, an initiative that inspires girls to embrace science, technology, engineering and math.
Throughout the last decade, libraries have reinvented themselves to offer more than just books. They're constantly finding new programs for all ages.
One local library is setting itself apart from the masses with the addition of a teen tech center.
The only one like it's kind in the state, Betsy Kling visited a branch of the Cleveland Public Library.
Inside the Rockport Library, located on West 140th and Puritas, you'll find the Best Buy Teen Tech Center.
The center allows kids to make music in a professional recording studio and that's not all.
The children also have access to 3-D printers, vinyl cutters, laser engravers, T-shirt presses, photography equipment and even a green screen for a future TV meteorologist. Jill Pappenhagen is the coordinator.
"The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is a place where kids can learn to be creators not just consumers of technology," she said.
"We want the kids to actually use their own interests to guide how they learn."
The Cleveland Public Library, Best Buy and the Computer Clubhouse Network partnered on this project.
The grand opening isn't until November but the center is open and already dozens of kids, majority being girls, are using it.
