Createch

Tech lab and creative space for teens.

By Teens For Teens

Createch is created by teens for teens, ages, 12-18 to  explore creative talents, pursue their interests, and spark new passions.

Play video games with friends, create a design on the laser engraver, dive into a VR game on an Oculus Quest headset, try your hand at painting, drawing, and sewing, pilot a drone, or record your next song in the recording studio.

Createch Across the City

Find Createch at four library locations: Arlington Hills Community Center, Rice Street Library, Rondo Library, and Sun Ray.

Createch is just for teens, ages 12-18.

Createch is a little different at each location, so check them all out to find your favorite.

Tell us what you’re interested in!  

Createch is a collaborative space, shaped by adult mentors and teens, so stop by to tell us what you’re interested in trying or learning more about and we’ll get you connected with supplies and knowledge you need to geek out.
