What is 101Space?
101Space is a place to hang out with your friends! It’s a place to play around with cool technology! It’s a place to learn something you’ve always wanted from a Tucson expert! It’s a place to learn skills to get the job that you really want! And, most importantly, it’s a place to have your voice heard. If you have an idea for an event you want to have, if you have a group that needs a meeting space, or if you’ve always wanted to learn about C++ programming, put it in the suggestion box on here, talk to a mentor, or come to one of our youth advisory board meetings.

Where is 101Space?
101Space is a brand new center located on the second floor of the downtown library in Tucson, Arizona. Although that it is its physical location, it is not confined there, however. 101Space is a place that exists in the places of those we serve. The program's we host are designed, not only to peak your interest, but to be accessible for everyone. That being said, we strive to be mobile so even if youth cannot come to us, we will go to them.
How can I be involved and volunteer?
Our 101Space could use a little bit of everything. If you’re skilled in a certain subject or have any interest in mentoring for teens, you would be very helpful. If you’re a teen who wants to make a difference in your community or a teen who needs inspiration our center is good for you. To volunteer contact us at Lib_101@pima.gov.
Can I make a suggestion?
At 101Space we want to do our best to offer services, and classes that interests, and is important to you. We need your input to best achieve this goal. Whether it’s about equipment, staff, or even the space itself. What do you like, what can we improve, or what should we leave out. Leave a suggestion here, or come down to the space and leave a note in our suggestion box, or to any of the 101Space staff. Help us make our space your space as well.
