On Wednesdays in May, the library is hosting Fun with Sphero sessions for kids aged eight to 11. Young participants will learn to code while playing with the library’s new Spheros. Participants work together to program the small robots to follow instructions and complete challenges. Parents and caregivers are welcome. It runs every Wednesday in May (program content is the same each week) from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

In June, on Tuesdays, children aged six to eight can take part in Code-a-Pillar, a fun way to introduce computational thinking to young kids. Parents and caregivers are welcome. It runs from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on June 4, 11, 18 and 25 (program content is the same each week).

Registration is needed for both programs – drop in to the library or call 604-527-4677.
