Coding and Game Design
The library offers coding workshops seasonally. Tweens can also experiment with the pre-loaded apps on our library tablets like Scratch and Bloxels oe by practicing with our Wonder Workshop robots and Ozobots. Concerned about screen time? Younger children can still get in pre-coding skill practice by playing with our screen-free coding activity sets located with our board games.

Mathematics Support and Enrichment
For younger children, we offer Merry Math Makers, a math-themed storytime. See our Calendar of Events for dates and times. The library also offers a Math Center outreach kit for checkout, and multiple Playaway Launchpads that are pre-loaded with math games to help make learning fun.
Wonder Workshop robots introduce coding skills. Ask to test drive Dot, Dash, or Cue or take robots home by checking out our robot kit. Robots check out for three weeks and are eligible for auto-renewal.
Dot and Dash work with all Wonder Workshop apps which are available for free through iTunes and Google Play.
If your child has ever taken something apart to figure out how it works, you might be seeing the signs of a natural tinkerer! Channel this curiosity in a safe way through exploration of the library’s Snap Circuits Motion and 3D Illumination sets. These sets serve as a fun and approachable introduction to electrical engineering. They allow kids to construct workable gadgets and learn circuit construction and design. Snap Circuits can be checked out with a library card or used in-house upon request at the Youth Services desk.
