Clubs for kids offered at SPL

Calling all coders! Come join the library’s Coding Club and learn the beginning steps of building code – and play with robots. Coding Club meets on Saturdays, October 12, 19, and 26, from 1-2 p.m.

Inspired by Girls Who Code, a free afterschool program for girls and boys in grades 3-5 and grades 6-12, Coding Club is open to kids with zero computer science experience all the way up to college-level, so everyone is welcome. The younger kids will learn the beginning steps of building code using the Girls Who Code book and by programming the library’s robot Dash.

The older ones will build coding skills by creating their own projects. To learn more about Girls Who Code, visit
