Library to offer two S.C. Codes workshops
The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library will host two SC Codes meetups, the first on Thursday and the second on Nov. 21. Both will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Dunlap Hopkins Technology Training Room on the second floor. Attendees will be able to try out the SC Codes online platform and get free guidance from local tech industry mentors.
SC Codes offers free online coding courses, mentorship opportunities, and career resources for anyone interested in programming — whether they’re brand new to code or looking to add technical skills.
Admission to the meetup is free and open to anyone interested in coding, mentorship, or just finding out more about the SC Codes initiative.
The library will show the 1999 drama “October Sky,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper, and Laura Dern, on Friday at 10 a.m.
The movie is based on a true story about a group of West Virginia teenagers in the 1950s who start building their own rockets after being inspired by the space race.
Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
Space is limited and registration is requested for groups. Call 843-413-7074 to register groups of five or more. The free matinee series is sponsored by Friends of Florence County Library.
The library will hold an Introduction to Pinterest workshop on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Participants will learn the basics of Pinterest, like how to create an account, how to save pins to their boards, and more advanced tasks such as organizing their pins and creating secret boards. Participants will be able to use the library classroom computers to explore Pinterest during the presentation.
Participation is free, but space is limited and registration is required for this adult program, made possible by Friends of Florence County Library. All materials will be provided.

The library will present Derrick Bull and Robin Parker performing Christmas music on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 6:30 p.m.
Bull is a well-known singer, songwriter, author, and speaker. He has continued to create music since releasing his first full project in 2010, while hosting events in the community that encourage, inspire, and inform.
