If you are 8 to 11 years old, you can sign up to learn Scratch at the Main Library. We will have three classes, each one about a different part of the program. Each session is independent of the others, so you can take any or all of them. These are hands-on classes, so class size is limited.
Scratch Classes at the Main Library for children, ages 8 to 11:
- February 26, 4:00 pm: Introduction to Scratch Details and sign-up
- March 26, 4:00 pm: Learn to make music with Scratch – Details and sign-up

Parents, here is an excerpt from the About Scratch web page:
Scratch is a programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art — and share your creations on the web.
As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
