Toledo Library Focuses on Teaching the Next Generation Coding

Computer programming has often been a topic for computer engineers, but coding has transformed into a key component for many curriculum's and deemed an essential ability for 21^st century learners.

The Toledo Lucas County Public Library is dedicated to helping local kids develop technology and problem-solving skills needed to succeed. The Library has developed a system to help kids begin the process of coding through fun, interactive and educational programs.
