What's New at the Garden City Public Library

New Catalog Interface

E-mail Print

The classic ALIScat catalog will soon be supplanted by the new Encore interface.  We have updated the Main Menu link on the left sidebar to point to the Encore version.  Although the two currently coexist and library patrons can use either one, we recommend easing into the new look while there is still a fallback position.  Use the Encore catalog to search for books and other materials in the collection of the Garden City Public Library and other members of the Nassau Library System.

Girls Who Code

E-mail Print

The Garden City Public Library is hosting a Girls Who Code Club that will offer computer-science education and technical-skill development to girls in 6th through 12th grade. The club will meet on Saturday afternoons from 2:00 pm to 4:45 pm in the Computer Lab on the lower level of the Library. The club started on March 14, 2015 and continues on March 21 & 28; April 11, 18 & 25; May 16, 23 & 30; and June 6 & 13. Each lesson will build upon the previous lesson, so attendance at each meeting is strongly encouraged. The curriculum includes monthly project-based activities and the opportunity to build real-world software including mobile apps and games.

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors. The Girls Who Code mission is to work to educate, inspire, and equip middle-school and high-school girls with the computing skills necessary to pursue opportunities in computing fields.

No prior experience in coding or programming is necessary. The girls will learn basic coding and programming, including variables, loops, and conditionals.

There is no cost to participate in the club, but the club size is limited to the first 20 girls who register. Registered participants will be expected to attend all sessions. Please bring your library card with you to each meeting.

The instructor for the club is Anna Korsakova, a data analytics manager at American Express. Dessie DiMino, an 11th grader at the high school, who spent seven weeks at the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program last summer, started the club and will be the teacher’s assistant. There may also be guest speakers and other perks. For more information or to register, please contact , Library director, or .
