Get Coding with Micro:bits

Join the library Find or renew books

With LEDs that can scroll messages or display pictures, programmable buttons and motion detectors you can code the Micro:bit to do all sorts of things from music to robots to games.

And from 7 July 2018, you can borrow them free for up to 3 weeks with your library ticket (8 years and over).

Inside the box is the Micro:bit, USB cable and a battery pack.

Don't worry if you don't have a computer: you can program the Micro:bit from an app on your phone or tablet and download the code via Bluetooth.

Micro:bits are available from Birtley, Blaydon, Central, Chopwell, Crawcrook, Leam Lane, Pelaw and Wrekenton Libraries. Just ask the staff for more information.
