Construction continues on San Diego's new center for literacy and learning with the grand opening of the New Central Library in July of 2013. The New Central Library will be a new civic icon that embodies San Diego's commitment to the future. It will serve the community's needs for literacy, information and knowledge in the 21st century.
Produced in partnership with MEDIA ARTS CENTER SAN DIEGO and the SAN DIEGO PUBLIC LIBRARY, the Mobile Stories program teaches technology and citizen journalism.
Offered to youth (ages 9-18) at select Branch Library locations at no cost, the classes uses the popularity of mobile phone technology to connect local youth with the extensive resources available at their local library in a format that is both current and easily accessible.
The San Diego Public Library and Media Arts recognize the ubiquity of cell phone technology; the need for under-represented youth to express their voices regarding news and events in their neighborhoods; and Mobile Stories potential to connect youth and their interests and needs with the information and resources of the library.
