Tech for Kids

UCPL’s Youth Services department offers kids public computers to do homework, learn, and have fun. Additionally, two Education Stations have more than 50 award-winning educational games and art programs.

Thanks to a partnership with Cinema St. Louis, UCPL offers vacation filmmaking camps for kids and teens. These week-long programs focus on either live-action or stop-motion animation filmmaking. Please see our library calendar for information on when these camps are scheduled.


Visitors to our Youth Services department can play educational games on our two iPad stations, which are loaded with fun and educational early literacy apps.

Our collection of Playaway LaunchPads offers kids educational apps pre-loaded onto durable tablets. Each LaunchPad has a theme, from learning the ABCs and 123s to science and math for older kids. These devices can be checked out on an adult card.

UCPL has take-home technology kits that allow kids to explore STEAM outside the Library. These kits can be checked out on an adult card. For more information, visit the STEAM Kits page of our website.
