Ready to Code: Libraries Supporting CS Education

In the last decade, libraries have transformed, from the traditional book provider to become the community anchor where the next generation technology innovations take place. Drawing from initiatives such as the Libraries Ready to Code project and IMLS grants, this session provides perspectives from thought leaders in industry, government, universities, and libraries on the role libraries play in our national CS education ecosystem and work together with communities to support youth success.

Learning Objectives

  1. Attendees will explore promising models and understand specific assets that make libraries well suited to support computational thinking activities.
  2. Attendees will explore new models of librarian education programs that prepare librarians as facilitators of CS education and computational thinking.
  3. Attendees will learn about American Library Association’s Google funded Ready to Code initiative and IMLS grant opportunities for their communities.
