Newbugh Free Library Launches Girls Code Club

NEWBURGH – The Newburgh Free Library will host two information sessions to provide details for the newly formed Newburgh Girls Code Club (NGCC) – an after-school coding club scheduled for Wednesdays beginning September 25th through December 18th, 2019.

The information sessions will be held on Tuesday, August 20 from 6 p.m.–7 p.m. at the library’s Town Branch in the Newburgh Mall, and Wednesday, September 11 from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Main Library at 124 Grand Street. We invite all youth ages 10-18 in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District, who identify as girls or who prefer to learn in a female centered environment, regardless of school status, to apply. Registration applications will be available at these information sessions and on the library’s website:

NGCC is a youth leadership development program focused on educating youth on coding and the career opportunities that come with STEM learning, using the Girls Who Code™ curriculum. Funded by the newly created Rowley Family Foundation Fund for Women & Children, NGCC will address the issue of gender inequality in the technology field by providing youth access, education, and exposure to engineering skills in a casual club environment at the Newburgh Free Library.

In addition to the weekly program, students will participate in the HV Tech Festival’s Hackathon on Saturday, October 12, 2019, sponsored by Open Hub, a collaborating partner of NGCC.
