What's Going On in the Library?
The Hour of Code is Upon Us!
Code.org is an international organization with a goal of introducing as many students as possible to Computer Science. During Computer Science Week (Dec. 5-9), Code.org - and the Cranston Public School Department - will introduce kids to the basics of computer programming via the Hour of Code.
