Youngsters in West Norfolk are invited to take part in computer coding sessions at Gaywood Library from February.

The library hosted a taster Coding Club on Saturday where children aged between 10 and 12 were invited to create games.

Community librarian Elena Parkin said: “The taster session went really well. Children were invited to make their own games. It was great fun and while they were enjoying themselves they were also learning a little about coding.”

The library is seeking volunteers aged 14 and above to organise coding sessions and assist youngsters in their learning.

No experience is required.

Ms Parkin added: “The sessions should take place on Saturday mornings and are expected to start after February half term. Any child between 10 and 12 is welcome to attend.”
