Please note that Newton Free Library will be taking a break from offering Girls Who Code this year. 
We'll be taking a break from our Girls Who Code program this year. Over the past five years, we've helped hundreds of girls gain valuable skills in this important field. We're very proud to be a part of the Girls Who Code network. This year, we will change our approach to computer science offerings and take a break from offering Girls Who Code for the remainder of 2019. We are excited to explore and provide more flexible and inclusive events to a wider tween and teen audience this fall! 

Please check our tween & teen calendar, starting in October, for these events! 
Additionally, there are many local Girls Who Code chapters that you can discover on the GWC website.

Please email Megan Coffey at  if have any questions. 

Club website (this page):
Eligibility: Open to all students, Grades 6-12, by enrollment only. Registration closed Monday, October 8th. Please email Teen Librarian, for any questions, comments or concerns regarding enrollment.
