Happy Friday From The CPL!
Did you know Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Jimmy Fallon and the Chicago Public Library Commissioner Brian Bannon jumped in the lake last Sunday? Now you can see it yourself and find out why.
(HINT: The kids of Chicago made them do it! If you participated in last year’s Summer Learning Challenge at the Chicago Public Library, that includes you!)
Code.org is putting the incredible popularity of Flappy Bird to good use. It just released a new initiative to help young people (or whoever, really) learn how to code by building their own customized version of the absurdly simple yet highly addicting game.
Missing Flappy Birds? Curious about coding? Try out code.org’s super-easy tutorial!
This is news! It may be old news if you’ve been to YOUmedia lately, but if not, maybe you should stop by and check it out.
Props to Blue Willow bookstore in Houston for this display.
Should this question ever occur to you, try asking a friendly neighborhood librarian! Or just admire the shades of blue in this lovely display.
If you’ve read these books or watched the shows(and the person typing this has!), you know this title is perfect.
