  • CoderDojo

    CoderDojo is coming to Surrey Libraries. The first CoderDojo will take place at Weybridge Library on 22 September from 2pm to 4pm. Find out more and sign up to join.

    At a Dojo attendees learn by working on projects in an informal atmosphere, talking amongst themselves, and collaborating. As well as coding, you could be designing video games or websites, creating awesome graphics, building electronic circuits or high-tech clothing, or even making and editing films and music! Basically, anything related to computers in any way.

    Surrey reading aloud competition 2018

    Tune in to Brooklands Radio on Christmas Eve at 5.30pm to listen to Wendy England reading aloud A visit from St Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore.

    Congratulations to Wendy England, nominated by Natalie England, the winner of the 2018 Surrey Reading Aloud competition. Wendy received more than half the votes in the competition reading aloud Dave Pigeon by Swapna Haddow.

    The Reading Aloud competition has revealed a wealth of talent in Surrey, amongst children and adults, for reading stories aloud. You can still listen to Wendy and the other shortlisted readings on Brooklands Radio.

    If this inspires you to read aloud to someone you know, please pop into your local library where you can borrow something seasonal or ask our lovely staff for a recommendation. Please check our holiday opening times before you leave home.
