Thanks to generous donors, MLF raised $2 million to build, equip and sustain CLOUD901. The new teen learning lab opened its doors in the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library in mid-September, 2015. The 8,300 square foot space is exclusively for teens, allowing productive time at the library, learning, creating, producing, and presenting.
Thanks to a grant from The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis' Give 365 group, and support from Friends of the Library, a pop-up version of CLOUD901 has been created. The mobile learning unit will allow components of CLOUD901 to travel outside of the Central Library location to reach more teens!
On average, about 150 teens are engaged daily in the space. Teens are learning by staff, peers, mentors, and subject matter experts.
