Teens can make mixtapes and drop beats by using YOUmedia professional grade recording software, and it's free.

An innovative digitial center for teens at the Harold Washington Library offers a recording studio, computers, laptops, video game consoles, and the latest in digital technology. The best part is that it's completely free for teens. Staying true to latest social media trends, the kids of YOUmedia even created their own "Harlem Shake" video using clay and some neat video editing skills.
