In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to launch a coding program in your library that will promote digital literacy and impact your community. Over four weeks, you’ll get an understanding of how to run computer programming courses that will introduce your patrons to new career paths and technologies. We’ll give you the tools you need to create library programs around coding languages (e.g. HTML, CSS, Python), career development software (e.g. Adobe Creative Suites, Salesforce, WordPress), and early learning (e.g. Scratch and robotics) without having to know how to code.
We’ll explore all facets of building coding programming for your library including funding, Code Clubs, Hackathons, and the free resources and technologies available. The course will include interactive sessions with library and industry experts will help attendees map out a blueprint for developing a coding program that fits within a variety of budgets and crosses a spectrum of patrons ranging from children to adults.
