Read Your Way Across the USA
Beginning January 25, young people in grades 4 through 8 can participate in “Read Your Way Across the USA” which is a cumulative program featuring book selections from all 50 states. After completing a registration form, participants read and complete the program at their own pace with no set deadline. When they have completed the program, they receive a prize. All books must be checked out from the Alliance Public Library collection to qualify.
Code Club is currently suspended due to Covid-19
Children 8 and older (must be able to read and work independently) can learn to code while playing computer games! Research has shown that children learn these skills best by doing but are more likely to “do” in a group setting with peers. We will start out simple and children will work at their own pace but can actually learn to build their own video games and apps. This is an informal setting with an adult facilitator. Participants can bring their own laptops (recommended) and APL will provide some as well. Children must be able to read and work independently. Meets on most Thursdays in the library workroom from 3:45-5 p.m. Please watch the Alliance Public Library Facebook page for changes to the schedule.
