McCracken County Public Library to offer youth coding programs

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The McCracken County Public Library will offer after school coding classes for middle and high school students.

The Next Level! Coders Club is the result of a $20,075 grant from the American Library Association, sponsored by Google.

Classes at the Oscar Cross Boys and Girls Club and Sprocket at the Coke plant will provide hands-on experience with coding in relation to video game design and music creation.

Library Director Susan Baier said, "Coding teaches computational thinking, digital literacy and problem-solving...important skill sets for twenty-first century jobs."
