Hour of Code
Hour of Code @ the Library
Every evening during Computer Science Education Week, Dec 9 - Dec 15
- The Library will host the Hour of Code each day during the week of Dec 9 - Dec 15 , from 4-5 pm, in Teen Project Room and Teen Space.
- Patrons of all ages are invited, from ages 6 to 106.
- The Library will provide a limited amount of computers. Please bring your own smart phone, tablet, or laptop, if you have one.
- There will be videos so bring headphones or earbuds.
- People can work in pairs to share equipment or use library's computers.
- Each day we will offer a different hour-long tutorial from code.org, which will be introduced and "decoded" by the the Library's very own web guru, Michael Drennen.
- The Hour of Code is a self-guided activity that everybody can do with no prior computer coding experience needed.

Our world is surrounded by technology. Information, commerce, communication, and entertainment all rely on computers. But only a tiny fraction of us learn computer science, the basics of how computers work, or how to create software, apps, or web sites. This year, to celebrate Computer Science Education Week (Dec 9-15), we're joining a massive campaign to prepare our population for the 21st century. The Hour of Code campaign has an audacious goal: to introduce 10 million students to one hour of computer science. I encourage all of you to participate. We want every member touched by our organization to participate as students in December - we should all spend one hour to learn the basics of computer science.
