Waseca Public Library was one of 28 libraries in 21 states (and the only one in the upper Midwest) to participate in the Ready to Code Co-Hort. Funded by American Library Association and sponsored by Google, Ready to Code aims to ensure libraries have the resources, capacity, and inspiration to embrace activities that promote computational thinking and computer science among our nation’s youth.
