  • 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.

    Body in the library

    A crime festival, running across various Surrey Libraries. The events range from coffee mornings with an author to a crime writing workshop, from a story time for adults to author talks and book signings:
