Bring your Bitsbox, Scratch, Digital Sandbox, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, and more projects to the Open Code sessions with Coder Dojo. Drop in any time from 4-6pm. Volunteers and experienced coders will be on hand to help you debug your code when things aren't working or provide ideas to take it to the next level. You will also be able to show off your creations on the big screen. This is not a class but rather a community building event to help kids and teens expand their creativity as they apply their technical skills in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Beginners to advanced coders are welcome and parents encouraged to participate! Bring your own laptop if you can. The library has a limited supply of Sphero, Laptops and Digital Sandboxes for youth to use.

Sponsored by the Boulder Library Foundation, Reading Buddies is a program of BoulderReads! for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade who struggle with reading. The children are each matched one-to-one to their own big buddy who will meet with them weekly for 13 weeks. The big buddies are all CU students who receive college service learning credit for the time they spend working with their little buddies, and are trained by BoulderReads to read aloud to their little buddies and help them identify their own tastes in reading. This great program is made possible by a grant from the Boulder Library Foundation, as well as by in-kind donations from the University of Colorado and CU students.
