This week, Dec. 7 – 11, the Adams County Public Library is hosting Hour of Code events for students age seven and up. Hour of Code is a one-hour, hands-on introduction to computer science, designed to help students discover that everyone can learn the basics of computer programming. Students participate in a self-paced online tutorial that teaches basic computer game design. Anyone is welcome to try Hour of Code online. Visit hourofcode.com and choose between a Minecraft or Star Wars theme to get started. AmeriCorps technology trainer Melissa Downs will host Hour of Code activities at the library this week. Stop by the North Adams Library after school on Thursday, or the Peebles Library after school on Friday. If you can’t attend, call Melissa and ask about scheduling an Hour of Code tutorial in a future week, or visit hourofcode.com to learn from home.

The Peebles Library wishes to thank the Peebles Girl Scout troops led by Nikki Atkins for decorating the children’s area Christmas tree, Kim Gilkison’s family for decorating the Christmas tree in the adult area, and the Peebles Magazine Club for creating a Christmas Village display in the library.

The Manchester Library thanks the Girl Scouts for decorating their Christmas tree, and Teen Activity Club for putting up Christmas decorations around the library. Kids gathered after school at the North Adams Library on Dec. 1 for a Christmas Kickoff Party, with games, snacks, and an Ugly Sweater Contest. More holiday themed events are planned in the upcoming weeks.

The Teen Activity Club will meet at the Manchester Library on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 3:30 p.m. after school for our annual Christmas Cookie decorating party.
