Middle school students can get one-on-one lessons in coding through the Library's Tech Bytes program. This technology-based program helps kids get ready for high school with the tech knowledge and experience needed to succeed. We've brought in two teens from the area to work as mentors.
Funding for Tech Bytes was awarded by the Illinois State Library Department, office of the Secretary of State, using funds provided by the United States Institute of Museum and Library Science, made possible under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act.
