Reading Riot: Create Code @ Your Library

Posted by annmcd on

Not long ago, writing computer code was considered too high tech for the average person. But most teenagers have grown up using computers so writing code to create your own program is simply the next step.

To celebrate Teen Tech Week, we are offering an introduction to computer coding class just for 6th graders and up. Library laptops will be up and running and you will have the chance to create lots of projects.

Like Star Wars? Create animated droids in a galaxy far, far away. How about an animated kaleidoscope? Or get styling with LED fashion. We’ll have these and many more projects to play with and resources to learn from.

Teen Tech Week, sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), is our chance to showcase the great digital resources available at the library. We extend learning beyond the classroom in a space that allows you to explore, create and share content.

So drop in and Create It @ Your Library!
