Did you know that your fabulous teen librarians have started a new trend in the YA department? Instead of scheduled gaming times, you can now use the PS4 any time you want (well almost). If Ms. Christina or Ms. Becky are at the desk, ask for the PlayStation and games you want to play and they will break it out. No waiting for open gaming night, now it’s any time you are in the mood!
Prefer board games or puzzles? We have those too; and lots more in storage so if you don’t see one you like, just ask.
School is tough and life can be stressful, but gaming away that tension is easy @ Your Library.

Course: Introduction to HTML and CSS

No prior programming experience required!
This is a guided MOOC. Think of a guided MOOC as a kind of learning circle, a facilitated study group for people who want to take online courses – with other people in a face-to-face setting.

You’ll get a support group for learning, access to new studying strategies, dedicated weekly study time and space, a network of co-learners, and the ability to learn in a low pressure environment.
