August 17, 2015
By BCPL

Starting in August, the Library will begin hosting a Girls Who Code Club. This club is designed specifically for girls in middle school, and will introduce coding and computer programming to girls who are interested in learning about computer science.


The first meeting of the Girls Who Code Club will be held on Monday, August 17th at 3:30 pm in the Computer Lab at the Library. Subsequent meetings will be held on Monday afternoons and will run through mid-December. No experience is necessary, however due to limited space registration is required. (If the need and interest exists, other coding groups may be forming for those students who are not middle school aged girls.)


For more information or to register for this free program, please call 859.238.7323 or contact Beth Goode at bgoode@BoylePubLib.org.
