Southampton Free Library offers coding club

Posted

The Southampton Free Library will offer a coding club 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays Jan. 8 to Feb. 12.

The Prenda Coding Club will allow participants to learn how to code websites, apps, games, and more through self-paced, fun projects. The club is recommended for fourth grade and up (ages 10 and older).

Participants must be able to work without adult assistance on projects.

The library invites participants to bring their own laptop if they wish to work independently. Laptops will be provided for shared use.

It is a walk-in program. The library will host a showcase in the spring where participants can show their family and friends what they have created.

“Coding is a useful skill to have and we wanted to offer it as a fun, stress-free club for youth to get them excited about computer programming,” said Heather Soltroff, youth services librarian.

By offering the coding club, the Southampton Free Library hopes to expand access to new and different formats and provide the necessary tools to learn new skills. It seeks to be a community educational center that is more than just books.
