Summer Readers Theater?!

Hey RT Gang!

For Summer Reading this year, we're reading Science Fiction! For readers' theater, that could translate as: Dr. Who, Firefly, Star Wars, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Jules Verne, Howl’s Moving Castle, any and all science fiction authors, and any and all mash-ups (Forbidden Planet PLUS The Tempest, etc.). We’re limited only by our imaginations!

SO--what do you want to do????? We need your input, we need your wheels spinning--and we need it SOON! Let’s email!

Waiting and wanting your wishes known,
Anarda & Melissa

Important for Coding Participants!

We apparently had a little tech-speak translation problem: Our teacher for tomorrow said “text editing app” in his email to me, so those are the apps I supplied links to, but those are apps for regular writing, not CODE writing.

What he really wants you to have is an HTML editing app. This is the link HE supplied yesterday, so one of these is what you want.

People with laptops should be fine—you can use the source coding. But for the iPad, you will apparently need one of these!

Our apologies for the confusion. See you tomorrow!

Coding workshop details!

Our Saturday afternoon CODING WORKSHOP with Newton Lee approaches! If you are signed up, READ THIS!

The workshop is from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.—please BE PROMPT (i.e., a few minutes early) so that you can find a seat, set up your device, and be ready to learn at 2:00!

PLUG IN/CHARGE UP YOUR DEVICE on Friday, before you come on Saturday, because we have TWO plugs in that entire room (not kidding—built in 1963!) so you can’t count on having a power source.

If you don’t have one already on your iPad or tablet, DOWNLOAD AN HTML EDITING APP. Here are some apps. You pick the one you want and download it.

Get ready to CODE! See you Saturday!

Photo Show Reception

If you entered something in the Friends of the Burbank Public Library Photo Contest (or know someone who did), you will want to attend the Photo Reception this Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. at Buena Vista branch. Doors open at 6:30, and it's always a popular event, so get there early! There will be a slide show featuring all the winners.

Then afterwards, see the show in its entirety in the Central Library auditorium. The show will remain up through April 16, and you can view it any time except when the auditorium is in use! (Check the library calendar before you drive, if you want to be sure of access.)
