"Beyond the formative effects of reading on the individuals composing society, the fact that they have read the same books gives them experiences and ideas in common. These constitute a kind of shorthand of ideas which helps make communication quicker and more efficient. That is what we mean when we say figuratively of another person, We speak the same language."

—Charles Scribner, Jr.

Where Vail Library Social Computers
Add event to calendar vCal

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 who believe that computer science provides a foundation for virtually any career - everybody can benefit from learning the basics. Visit 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.
