It's techy! It's artsy! It's fun! Code Club returns for another year of game-making, robot-building, app-developing, web-designing Fridays. Participants will be invited to design their own projects using a variety of digital platforms, including Scratch, Python, and HTML/CSS. Aspiring artists can try their hand at creating pixel sprites, digital paintings, or animations.

Code Club registration is closed at this time. If seats become available registration will re-open.

Banned Books week Break-and-Make Art

Tuesday, September 24 | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm | Library Calhoun Room

Banned Books Week is a celebration of our freedom to access information, particularly books, free from the constraints of censorship. What better way to mark the occasion than by breaking some books??

Join us for an evening of crafty destruction as we cut, tear, fold, glue, and mark up pages of books that have been discarded from the library's collection. We will have instructions for folded book art, decoupage/paper-mâché, blackout poetry, and book page painting available. Participants will also learn about the practice of challenging and banning books, how it impacts schools and libraries, and what they can do to support their freedom to read.

This activity is designed for patrons ages 12 and up. Participants' creations can be added to our Banned Books Week display (September 22-28) for pick-up later or taken home the day of the event.


I Saw That on the Internet! D-I-Why-a-Thon

Saturday, September 28 | 10:00 am - 1:00 pm | Library Calhoun Room

We've all seen them: the 5-minute crafts, the head-scratching lifehacks, the seemingly pointless projects that make you go "Hmmmmm." The videos make these crafty creations look so easy, but are they really? Let's find out!

The Library will have a curated variety of seemingly simple online DIY's for participants to try during our DIY-a-Thon. This program is for patrons ages 12 and up. Registration is required; supplies will only be guaranteed for registered participants.
