ALA and Google Continue Their Partnership

ALA’s Libraries Ready to Code initiative, which is sponsored by Google, gave 250 school and public libraries $500 in micro-funding so they can plan and implement coding activities during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 3–9, 2018).

ALA is continuing its partnership with Grow with Google to expand Google’s in-person workshops for job seekers and small businesses to libraries in every U.S. state, among other activities. Grow with Google made its own announcement about the partnership here.

“We are thrilled by today’s announcement of Grow with Google’s new initiative to enhance the role of libraries as digital community centers,” says Loida Garcia-Febo, ALA’s president. “It is exciting to see what started three years ago as a collaborative exploration has grown into a broad range of investments in America’s libraries that promote computational thinking, fuel innovation and advance our nation’s workforce.” 

For more information, read the press release.
