ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The St. Paul Public Library has been awarded a $100,000 grant to create special computer labs for middle and high school students that the funders hope will become national prototypes.

The labs are to help young people move beyond just consuming digital content to creating it. They will give the young people access to computers, video cameras, audio equipment and more.

The grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Science and the MacArthur Foundation is to the St. Paul Public Library to plan and the design the labs.

The local library, the city and the Friends of the St. Paul Public Library will provide another $65,000 in in-kind support.

The St. Paul Public Library was one of 12 groups around the country to receive a grant.
