Play and Learn Minecraft
The Library’s public-access computers include the latest version of Minecraft for patrons with their own Minecraft accounts. The Library also hosts three MinecraftEDU servers which provide the opportunity for patrons (with or without a Minecraft account) to learn, build, and explore in a closed environment. Warrenville cardholders can now request free online access to Learn to Mod, a training tool which offers Blockly for beginners and JavaScript for those interested in more detailed coding. Email trainer@warrenville.com with your full name and library card number to sign up.
