Microbits in Libraries


Libraries are in the Government’s third phase of easing of the lockdown, currently not before 4 July.

We’re working through plans on how we could safely re-open buildings with social distancing in place, what services we could safely offer, and preparing to make the physical changes to the layouts and facilities in the buildings.

Until we have completed this work, we won’t be in a position to provide a programme for re-opening, but we will let people know as soon as we can. Please check the website for the most up to date information on our plans and available services.

The BBC micro:bit is a mini computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life.

Box and contents

Each box contains 1x BBC micro:bit, 1x battery pack + batteries, x1 usb cable, x1 safety leaflet & how to guide.
Quick Start & Safety Guide PDF

Each box is available for loan for up to 3 weeks for free. Please use the contents guide to ensure everything is in the box when you return it.

Reserve and borrow a micro:bit starter kit

Damaged or malfunctioning micro:bit? Missing part? Please return to the nearest library, with a description of the error or part, so we can replace it for you.
