Ready to Code library plans CS training materials for librarians

Libraries Ready to Code grantee Waseca Public Library is setting plans in place to help other libraries in their regional system create customized computer science and computational thinking programs. Matthew White, a librarian at Waseca Public Library, shares his takeaways from Libraries Ready to Code cohort meetings at the ALA Midwinter Conference, and the librarian’s Ready to Code project goals.
