Computer Science Class Teaches Teens to Code

The Hour of Code Movement sounds like something out of a Dan Brown novel, but instead of teaching about secret societies, teens can learn a secret code- computer code.

Anna Todd, Belle Isle librarian, is one of many organizers in the global movement designed to demystify computer code. The Belle Isle Library Hour of Code is Saturday, May 9, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and will be led by staff from the Microsoft Store.

Need a Job? The Library Can Help!

Need a Job? The Library Can Help!

First time job seekers or those who have been out of the workforce for a while can experience challenges when seeking employment. A series of workshops in May at the Downtown Library will teach employment hopefuls the tools needed to get the job.

Catalog Back Up!!

Thanks to our talented IT staff and our catalog vendor we now have a working online catalog again.  There are a couple of things to know:

  1. At this time customers cannot reset their EZ password.  EZ logins and passwords will work just fine; passwords just cannot be reset for now.
  2. Any titles added by today will not show in the catalog immediately. 

 We truly appreciate your patience and deeply apologize for any inconvenience.

Reduxion Theater presents classic literature to children with humor and excitement. The antics of Professor Spillsby keep children laughing while the treasure hunt keeps them attentive with anticipation.
