Officially launched in the spring of 2017, the Long Beach Public Library Mobile Studio is a makerspace on wheels bringing exciting STEM learning opportunities to libraries, parks, schools, and community events throughout the city. The Mobile Studio is equipped with resources for instruction in 3D printing, robotics, programming, graphic design, music production, and more.

Thanks to very generous donations, this program is fully funded by the Library Foundation. We were honored to be joined by Andeavor Director of Government and Public Affairs Tiffany Rau at our 2018 Grape Expectations gala in June where Andeavor gifted $150,000 to the Mobile Studio. This is Andeavor’s second major gift to the Mobile Studio, allowing it to continue bringing innovative learning opportunities to Long Beach.

The Mobile Studio has 20 scheduled stops this summer and counting! Find out when the Mobile Studio will be in your neighborhood at the link below.
