Computer Coding Class at Library

There will be two introductory coding classes for teens ages 11 to 18 this summer at Roeliff Jansen Community Library.  The first session will meet on Wednesday July 19th and the second, on Wednesdy August 2nd.

Pizza will be served at 5:30 and the sessions will begin at 6 pm.  Advance registration is required for each session.  To register, please call the library at 518-325-4101.

In the first class, HTML5 & CSS3, kids and teens will learn the building blocks of web design and website creation. In the second class, kids will get an introduction to Python, a scripting language. They will learn the proper syntax and structure while navigating through a dungeon to attack ogres and find treasure.

Classes will be taught by Pam McCluskey who works at the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison, N.Y. as the Digital Reference Librarian. She has been running a coding club called Project Code Spring in Garrison for 6 years and has been in the IT industry for more than 30 years.

Lessons will be cloud based, so kids and teens will easily be able to continue the lessons from home. To register, please call the library at 518-325-4101.
