"If none of us ever read a book that was 'dangerous,' had a friend who was 'different' or joined an organization that advocated 'change,' we would all be just the kind of people Joe McCarthy wants. Whose fault is that? Not really [McCarthy's]. He didn't create this situation of fear. He merely exploited it, and rather successfully."

—Edward R (oscoe) Murrow (1908-65) American news anchor, broadcast journalist

The Town of Vail Public Library is hosting an Hour of Code from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12.  We will be offering an open studio in the Social Computer Area at the back of the library for one hour of coding fun.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code" and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.  It is a nationwide initiative sponsored by the folks at Code.org who believe that computer science provides a foundation for virtually any career - everybody can benefit from learning the basics. Visit Code.org for inspiration.

We will view the tutorials for an Hour of Code and try our hands at writing computer code.  It is fun! It is exciting! It is so relevant to our tap, swipe and scan world!

No experience necessary. No reservations required. We are inviting anyone from 6 – 106 to join us.

For more information, please call 970-479-2187.
