Family Code Night Training #1

The University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Library and Information Studies and John Pearce, Executive Director of Family Code Night, are teaming up to join librarians, students, faculty, and families for Rhode Island's first Library Family Code Night Event!

This workshop will train librarians and library staff to facilitate family coding events at public libraries using the Family Code Night curriculum. Family Code Night provides resources for creating events that ignite coding and computer science learning through family participation. Visit Family Code Night to learn more about their event kits and see examples of events.

Interested library staff can choose between 2 training sessions on December 11th (morning or late afternoon) at the Cranston Public Library, and are welcome to attend the RI Public Library Family Code Night Event that evening, also at the Cranston Public Library:

5:30-6:00 pm: Press Event/Speakers

This event is sponsored by a grant from the Infosys Foundation USA to URI's GSLIS, which is bringing together public libraries, university faculty and students, and OLIS, to learn and launch pilot coding programs for diverse families at public libraries.
