Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Coding Resources to the Rescue!

If you are like me, you totally get the importance and excitement about coding, but are a little intimidated at the idea of rolling out a coding program in your library.  There are a couple of resources created in Wisconsin to help you with that! 

Most recent, the Youth Services Section of the Wisconsin Library Association has put together 12 Months of Coding, with low tech, medium tech, and high tech programs to teach coding concepts to a variety of ages.   Check it out here, available on the YSS blog!

There is another great resource created by Department of Public Instruction staff, Coding in Wisconsin Public Libraries.  Lots of great resources, guides for programs, and some tips for helping you figure out a great way to wade into coding programming, taking into consideration your own readiness and interest.

What are you doing related to coding?  Anything to share?  We'd love to hear about it.  Send me a note and I'll do a blog post about it!
