Hour of Code comes to Union County Public Library

Union County Public Library joins mission to introduce 100m students to computer science

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this.

In one week last year, 15 million students tried computer science! Computer science was on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement.

Now the Hour of Code movement is aiming for 100 million students.

That’s why every one of the Union County Public Library is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code.

The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success. 

Elementary School and Middle School students can join us for peer moderated, self-directed tutorials on Mondays from 11 am to 1 pm and Fridays from 11 am to 1 pm, with a celebration at the end of summer.  Our younger patrons will learn to code JavaScript with the help of Angry Birds, Elsa and Anna, and Flappy Birds.  Spaces are limited – call and reserve your place today!

Union County Public Library receives $350.00 from the Whitewater Valley REMC Community Trust to assist providing activities in this summer’s reading program “Every Hero Has a Story”. Whitewater Valley Community Trust Board Members Carol McQueen and Michael Allen presented the check to Mary Rigsby.
