Central Library Renovation: Teen Central

by Christine Schonhart

Plans for the new Teen Central space on the second floor of the Central Library have been heating up this winter. Library staff have met with the architects and Teen Council several times to review floor plans, collections, furniture, and technology for the new space. Teens are especially excited about two new features:  the game lounge – where teens will be able to take on their friends in the virtual game world – and the digital lab – where teens can let their creativity fly making movies, music, video games. and more.  Teen Central will have a very distinctive feel from the rest of the second floor with a more loft-inspired design. View the floor plan below to see all the different places young people can hang out, geek out, and mess around at Teen Central.

      Hi Omar,

      We expect the new Teen Central space to open in winter 2014/2015. We will update this blog when more information is available.

      Glad you enjoy the East Boston branch too.
