Project Next Generation (PNG) is a series of technology classes for Teens and MidKids.

Project Next Generation strives to introduce new technologies and information literacy to youngsters in a relaxed and creative classroom environment. Classes revolve around creating content using computers and digital devices as well as understanding and making electronics. Some of the major focal points are digital photography, digital photo manipulation, digital video, digital video editing, music creation, 3D design, 3D printing, electronic circuitry, as well as computer coding, programming and robotics. We are always looking to offer new activities as well! You can view all of our past class activities by visiting our PNG @ Elmwood Park Public Library blog.


PNG classes are typically held on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school at 4pm.  PNG events are listed on our monthly calendar.  PNG programs are free but sign-ups are required.  Classes are held on the 2nd floor of the library in the Next Gen Lab. If you have questions email This email address is being protected from spambots.
