Are you a student between age 7 and 17, who would like to know more about coding? Join us at the library for a fast, fun introduction to how computer coding works. Dec. 7 through 11 we will hold an “Hour of Code” event at each Adams County Public Library. Stop by with your own tablet or laptop, or use one of ours, and get hands-on practice creating your own computer code, and discover how powerful coding can be.

Choose from a self-guided coding activity with a Mine Craft or Star Wars theme. “Hour of Code” coordinator and AmeriCorps volunteer Melissa Downs will help you get started and answer questions as you work on the one-hour project. This is an interactive, hands-on activity suitable for students at many levels, and the projects are a great way to discover what coding is like. Learners of all ages are welcome, and older and younger students can share a project and work together. Bring a parent or grandparent, and introduce them to how computer coding works.

Call 937-587-2085 and ask for Melissa or Jessica for more information, or to sign up. “Hour of Code” is free and advance registration is requested. Plan to attend “Hour of Code” at the Peebles Library on Monday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m., the West Union Library on Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 3 p.m., the Manchester Library on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 3 p.m., and the North Adams Library on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 3 p.m. Can’t make it?
