    • Want to practice your coding skills while having fun with Minecraft?  This summer the library will be offering coding for Grades 4 thru 8 on two Friday afternoons, July 26th and August 2, 2019.  We'll work together to try and create a plugin for our Minecraft server by doing real-world coding. Maybe we'll succeed, maybe we won't, and we'll probably run out of time, but we'll have fun trying! We recommend attending both Fridays since we'll be working on the same project both days.  You can bring your own Minecraft account or use one from us while at the library! Register at https://www.scarboroughlibrary.org/youthtech/events/series/minecraft-coding/minecraft-coding-registration-form.  (Limited to 12 participants.)
