Session Title

Print ("A Library's Jump into Coding Programs")

Description

In the world today, coding is a hot topic, and everyone wants to get involved. Although not everyone will be a computer programmer, knowing the basics can help people work more efficiently and become better problem solvers. The only question is how does a public library introduce coding to its patrons? The Naperville Public Library started offering coding programs to the public in the summer of 2014. Since then, we have added a variety of different programs to our tool box. Are you interested in introducing your patrons to the world of coding? We will look over the different programs that range from traditional classroom training to family coding nights. We will explore how/why these programs were implemented, the resources we used, and all the bumps in the road along the way.
