Fridays 1:00pm-3:00pm – A teen program engaging youth in the Design Process. Open ended lab time or community driven projects to teach real world skills. Switch encourages collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking in order to problem solve. Youth learn skills of project management and technologies (CNC Milling, 3D Printing, Sewing, Laser Engraving, Prototyping) in their pursuit of completing these projects. Appropriate Ages: 12-18.
The latest edition added to the library is a full functioning multi-purpose recording studio. Watch HERE: The studio comes equipped with mixing board, headphones, 3 microphones, dual monitor display, webcam, and a greenscreen! Did we mention a full Adobe Creative Suite package. With all these tools to create, there is not shortage of things to do.
With the growth to the new building Salmon Public Library has been able to purchase new tablets for in library use to stay up on the latest technology. A computer room offering programs like Photoshop, Microsoft Office Products, and many more to facilitate a well rounded library experience. Computer Zen has also graciously donated a 3D printer that is sure to challenge even the most artistic of teens.
Make It At the Library
We are proud to offer “Make It At The Library” programs coming in 2016. These programs will focus maths, science, and arts, incorporating technology. From potential programs surrounding robotics, computer programming, and video editing, we are looking forward to rolling out these exciting new in library programs to supplement a full education.
Teen Read Week
Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998. Libraries across the world celebrate Teen Read Week with a variety of special events and programs aimed at encouraging teens to read for pleasure and to visit their libraries for free reading materials.
Summer Of Code
Looking for a way to get students, from grades 2-12, excited to learn programming? This is it! Spend the summer helping students work through a Khan Academy introductory programming course. With the help of videos, fun challenges, and projects they will learn programming while creating drawings, animations, and even getting outside. Showcases, badges, and prizes throughout the summer keep coding exciting for everyone. Here’s how it works: Summer of Code.
