The James Blackstone Memorial Library is ready to build confidence, encourage exploration and demonstrate ways in which children can be “makers” in this digital world by creating music, telling stories, making games as well as art projects through the online coding program SCRATCH.

Every week participants will work together to take on a different digital component that will introduce them to ways in which they can be makers! SCRATCH is 100% free and accessible online so children can continue learning/making from home.

This is an 8 week course, when you signup you are agreeing to all 8 sessions.
Registration for this program is required so that we can plan accordingly. To do so, please call 203. 488. 1441. ext. 321 or click here.
