SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – If you would like to learn coding and web development skills, now’s your chance.

The Springfield Public Library will be providing access to Treehouse – an online learning platform – for free.

Lessons cover the fundamentals of working with Android, iOS, C+, JavaScript, Python, Ruby and more.

“Right now we know that there are members of the Springfield community who are looking for ways to learn new skills or even to change their careers,” said Business Outreach Librarian Mark Riddle. “We believe this service could be invaluable for them, particularly due to the changes brought on by COVID 19. We are very happy to be able to offer this service for our patrons -- the first public library in Oregon to do so.”

The pilot program will run from July 1 through Dec. 31.
