Coding for Kids and Teens

If you've ever visited a website or played a game using an app on a phone or tablet, you have used something that was created using code. When someone codes, they create instructions for a computer to follow, and this makes it possible for us to play computer games, use apps, browse the web, and more. Learning to code allows someone endless opportunities, including creating their own games and even their own websites!

Recycling Robot Contest

The theme for our Summer Reading Program this year is "Build a Better World!" Join us on Thursday, June 15, 2017 @ 3 pm and do your part by participating in this fun, team building, creative activity.  This contest is a great way for teens to create something out of items such as bottles, cans, cardboard, etc that would ordinarily go into the recycling box or the landfill.  Prior registration is required in person at the library or by phone at 713-941-2385.  Participants must be between the ages of 12 to 17 years of age.  Teams of 4 will be created on the day of the contest and will be allowed a maximum of 1.5 hours to create their robot.
