You Can Learn to Code

Learning code allows us to do things with computers we wouldn't be able to do otherwise. On Sunday, the Ground Floor joins millions of people in 180-plus countries for Hour of Code, a worldwide celebration of coding and computer science. From 3 to 5 p.m., we'll  geek out with LEGO Mindstorms and Makey Makeys, make coding-themed crafts, and watch an awesome demo by Quadrangles, the robotics competition team at Bloomington High School South. All ages welcome.

Learning a language for the first time, or brushing up on one you already know—the Library has all you need to make your journey as easy as possible. We offer a variety of resources, including books, audiobooks, apps, and in-person classes, to meet the needs of different learning styles (including for people learning English, through VITAL, the Library's adult education unit). 

Biking Bloomington

Let's talk about bikes. As a woman who proved her mettle cycling the streets of Tampa, Florida, I can confidently say biking is great in Bloomington—and we've got the certification to prove it. With over seventy miles of bike lanes and trails, Bloomington is recognized as a Gold-Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. On top of all that, we have the organizations and resources that make cycling in Bloomington the best. Whether you're a daily commuter, a road bike warrior, or a mountain bike fiend, Bloomington has a little something for everyone.

Here are my highlights of what Bloomington has to offer.
