May Classics Book Club

Join us Tuesday, May 24th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss The Stranger by Albert Camus

With the intrigue of a psychological thriller, The Stranger—Camus’s masterpiece—gives us the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach.

Behind the subterfuge, Camus explores what he termed “the nakedness of man faced with the absurd” and describes the condition of reckless alienation and spiritual exhaustion that characterized so much of twentieth-century life.

Coding Kits

We loved our kids coding club almost as much as the kids, but since, we can’t meet in person, we are sharing our coding kits with you!

Stop by and check out our Coding Kits in the Juvenile Room! Each kit includes a game or toy, handy guides to help you get started, and programming challenges.

Current kits include:

  • Beebot
  • Botley, The Coding Robot
  • Let’s Go Code
  • Ozobot
  • Turing Tumble

We hope to add additional kits in the upcoming months and would love your feedback and suggestions! Also be sure to check out our Coding for Kids resource guide to get more great coding ideas.

These items were part of a Computational Thinking Kit given to the Library through a statewide initiative that was funded by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
