Library Updates

Next Coding Camp is September 28-29, Sign Up Now!

Posted by ajreilly on


The Santa Fe Public Library is offering a free, hands-on Coding Camp, which is a 10-hour course focused on kids (6th grade or older) in elementary, middle and high school, but it is open to anyone.  It will involve serious work and a good amount of stretching and overcoming one’s comfort zone. “The goal is to get started on a path that leads to serious programming, rather than using a canned ‘for kids’ programming environment which will never be used for real work”, states Mark Galassi, the program’s coordinator.

No cost

There is no cost: the course is free and taught by volunteers.

“Special thanks to the LANL foundation for a grant which has helped purchase materials, the Santa Fe Public Library for offering its space and resources, and the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library for helping with fundraising”, states Galassi.

How to start

To register your child (in 6th grade or older) for the camp, start by visiting this website for more details:

The next workshop will take place at the Main Library (145 Washington Ave.). It is a 10 hour course and students must commit to taking the full course.

Saturday, September 28 (10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.)

Sunday, September 29 (1 p.m. – 4:45 p.m.)
