The Backspace



Its more than just a key on your keyboard! The Backspace is the new name of our after-school teen hangout area. The Backspace includes couches, games, television, and, of course, computers. Teens can use the space to work on homework, do research projects, browse the internet, play games, or just hang out. It offers a more relaxed atmosphere for our teenage patrons than the front computer lab, and Backspace participants are allowed to bring food, drink, and music. The Backspace is open weekdays from 3:00-6:00pm.
The Backspace also hosts our brand-new mini recording studio, donated from the Oberlin Conservatory. The studio space is equipped with a keyboard, mixer, and computer software to help users create their own sound.

All our Teen Workshop Series will take place in the Backspace.
