Ámate Ahora visiting with our very own and most distinguished Hector Hernandez. This June he’s celebrating his 35th Anniversary as Director of the Rudy Lozano Branch. One of the most visited libraries of the Chicago Public Library in Pilsen. We also met YOUmedia Coordinator Viviana. (see the pic).

YOUmedia… So the design of the YOUmedia experience is based on the research of Professor Mizuko Ito and colleagues, Living and Learning with Digital Media (2008). This ethnographic study of more than 700 youth found that young people participate with digital media in three ways: (1) they “hang out” with friends in social spaces such as Facebook; (2) they “mess around” or tinker with digital media, making simple videos, playing online games, or posting pictures in Flickr; and (3) they “geek out” in online groups that facilitate exploration of their core interests.

Branch libraries with YOUmedias, offer middle school students an opportunity to take workshops such as Digital Photography, Graphic Design, Digital Music, Digital Video, and Radio/Podcasting. Pretty cool! Uber special bonus YOUmedia is considering capturing the ÁmateAhora Health Expo!

The Knight Moves Chess Club (KMCC) is also located at the Rudy Lozano branch of the Chicago Public Library, the largest Spanish-language library in the city located in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. The club was formed in September, 1989 with a $100 contribution from a local businessman which was used to purchase 12 chess sets. The club has been run ever since by Hector Hernandez, the library’s branch manager, a former president of ICA, and an award-winning leader in Chicago’s adult and youth chess scene for more than 30 years.
