"It meant that New York philanthropists, New York society, would now rediscover the library. ... that learning, books, education have glamour, that self-improvement has glamour, that hope has glamour."

The Town of Vail Public Library is hosting an Hour of Code from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12.  We will be offering an open studio in the Social Computer Area at the back of the library for one hour of coding fun.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code" and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.  It is a nationwide initiative sponsored by the folks at Code.org who believe that computer science provides a foundation for virtually any career - everybody can benefit from learning the basics. Visit Code.org for inspiration.

We will view the tutorials for an Hour of Code and try our hands at writing computer code.  It is fun! It is exciting! It is so relevant to our tap, swipe and scan world!

No experience necessary. No reservations required. We are inviting anyone from 6 – 106 to join us.

For more information, please call 970-479-2187.
