Hour of Code!

Participate in an Hour of Code at the Forks Branch Library!
Wednesday,  April 5,  4-5pm.

The Forks Branch Library will host an Hour of Code on Wednesday, April 5, from 4pm to 5pm.
Hour of Code is an introduction to computer science designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn programming basics. Each participant will use a laptop to access a variety of fun, self-guided tutorials provided by Code.org.

More About Coding
Computer coding is a valuable skill because it is a universal language. People who know how to code will be able to communicate across countries and cultures, and solve problems more efficiently in the future. Learning programming at a young age helps children solve everyday problems and set up for a lifetime of opportunities. Hour of Code is the first step for anyone to learn that computer science is fun and accessible at all ages!

This event is recommended for ages 4 and up; even pre-readers can participate! All learning levels are welcome. Laptops will be provided.

Create, play, and tell a story during LEGO® Maker programs at the Sequim Branch Library from 1pm-3pm on Saturday, April 22, and Saturday, May 20.

LEGO® Maker program participants will be encouraged to write a story about their creation, which will be photographed during the program. LEGO® bricks and creations will remain in the library at the conclusion of each program. All ages are welcome, though parents or caregivers are asked to accompany all children under 8 years-old. All materials will be provided.

The library’s LEGO® brick collection was built with the generous support of the Port Angeles Friends of the Library, the Friends of Sequim Library, the North Olympic Library Foundation, and the Girl Scout Troop of Western Washington.

PAWS to Read

Sequim PAWS to Read

Second Wednesdays, 3-4pm
October 2016 — May 2017

Discover the joy of reading with a little help from some furry friends at the Sequim Branch Library! The PAWS to Read program will connect readers with Olympic Gentle Paws Therapy dogs beginning October 12 at 3pm. Dogs and their trainers will eagerly listen to readers of all ages from 3-4pm on the second Wednesday of every month, October through May.

Reading to a dog or other pet provides a non-judgmental audience and encourages reading with confidence in a supportive and fun atmosphere. Research shows that the more a child reads, the more their reading skills will improve. For nervous or self-conscious readers, reading to therapy dogs can be a helpful way to practice reading without feelings of intimidation or judgment.
