Tuesday, July 31 @ 6:30 p.m.

Rhode Island Computer Museum (RICM) – Karaoke Coding! Sonic Rocks! Teen Program

This workshop uses portable mics and free coding software aimed towards educating a new generation of programmers and sound engineers. Kids will be introduced to programming using age-appropriate software tools to modify voices and/or design a beat box. They will use drag-and-drop "code blocks" and that lets kids create interactive stories, animations and sounds. In this workshop, kids will be putting their sounds and coding concepts through focused discussions of basic sound design. By the end of the session, kids will have learned how to making their very own BEAT BOX.

 

HOT, HAZY, HUMID WEATHER – If you do not have air conditioning in your home and want to get some relief from those hot, hazy, and humid days, visit the library, relax, and cool off. You are welcome to stay with us during our normal hours of operation.

 

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY NEWS: Thank you to all who donated items for our recent community yard sale. Our library patrons truly came through with a large variety of donated items.  We truly appreciate your support of library services.  The proceeds from the sale will go to help support the Summer Reading Program. The FOL recently purchased two new museum passes for the Audubon Society and the Blithewold Gardens in Bristol.  Both are great destinations for family day trips.  The FOL will meet during the summer on Friday, July 13th and August 10th at 5 p.m.  We are looking for volunteers to occasionally drop off books to local nursing homes. If you routinely visit one maybe you could help?  The time commitment is low and the rewards are high! Please contact FOL president Catherine Lynn: phone: 699-1221, or e-mail friends.east.smithfield.library@gmail.com.
