Kids' Coding at the Library

December 7, 2016 

The Woodland Public Library just wrapped up its fourth series of Kids’ Coding Classes with a pizza party and Open House for families to showcase children’s work and allow their families to try coding themselves.

The children had had a great time learning how to create games and animations, and their families were happy their children had the opportunity to take these free classes at the library.
