BATTLE OF THE BOOKS
For students entering grades 6th through 12th. Runs through summer with bimonthly gatherings which feature snacks, socializing, and some studying. Culminates in a competition against other system libraries where participants generally meet an author and eat pizza. See child librarian for more details.
GIRLS WHO CODE
For girls or those who identify as female, grades 6-12. (See kids' page for 3rd-5th grade). Girls meet and build coding skills as they learn, plan, build, and socialize together to create a project they care about. Runs in Fall semester and meets every other week for a total of 8-10 sessions. A nation-wide initiative with amazing summer camp opportunities as well, for which the library will help our participants apply.
