Teen Tech Week 2016: Create It @ the Library!

TTW_logoEvery March, Teens around the nation are celebrated for the creativity, drive, and inspiration that they bring to their Libraries year-round. Innovation is a forefront in Libraries every day of the year, but resources and programs are especially highlighted during Teen Tech Week so Teens can explore different opportunities and interests without any pressure to succeed, and always with a lot of fun. Since the use of code language in creating websites, video games, and more has become one of the most entertaining and sought out skills in the current tech world, the Library wants to offer the chance to try it out in a relaxed environment.

Join me, the Teen Librarian, and Anne, an Adult Services Librarian who runs the Library’s computer classes, as we teach Teens grades 6-12 the basics of coding, and how to make the most of it, whether you succeed the first time around or don’t. This class is for beginners and those with a general interest in the art of coding, and we have future plans to continue expanding on this skill through our Library programming. We’ll be offering 2 types of coding, Python and HTML, for you to try your hand at in various settings. This program takes place Monday, March 7th from 6:30-8 p.m. Click here to register online or call us at 847-945-3311 to register.

If you can’t make it to the class next week, try out some of the links below to see if coding is something that interests you!

And here are some additional resources to help you get your tech on!
