Code Club finishes its first year

Congratulations to our Dardy Coders for taking their first steps into a larger world. 

While it took a little while to catch on, by the end of August we had full classes every week with participants completing their first module and making great progress on their coding path.

Well done to Doug and Harley for completing their Scratch Module 1. A great start to an exciting journey!

What is Code Club?

Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteer-led coding clubs with a mission to #getkidscoding! We are aiming to give every child the skill, confidence and opportunity to shape their world.
The program is aimed at kids aged 8 – 15 years of age who advance through a series of coding languages:
  1. Scratch – a simple block-coding program which allows users to build animations and games while learning the fundamentals of coding.
  2. HTML/CSS – allows users to develop their understanding while building web pages and online content from the ground up.
  3. Python – this highly versatile programming language allows users to use their understanding and creativity to build Apps and complete web sites.
  4. Blender – coders can build 3D animations and games, creating 3D characters and developing their own movies and stories.

Code Club is project based learning, aligned with the National Digital Technologies Curriculum and provides kids with the opportunity to collaborate, create, communicate and problem solve! We celebrate our errors and embrace them as a chance to learn.

Code Club is free to join and is supported by volunteers and library staff. 

We strongly encourage parents to come along and be a part of what their child is working on and achieving. Not only that, kids can log in from home and continue progressing through their lessons.

Being part of a Code Club means meeting like-minded people, making new friends and coding awesome things together!

What happens next?

We’ve learned a lot this year about Code Club and next year we are planning lots of ideas to make each class even more interesting and new. Registrations for Code Club 2019 will be announced in January so be sure to keep checking our website, Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss out.

What’s New

Free online movies and television

It’s been a busy day and you’re ready to relax and enjoy something on the telly. You flick through the stations, nothing on. You don’t need to come into the library to enjoy a movie night with the family. All you’ll need is a computer or TV and an Internet connection.

One of the benefits of the digital age is there are plenty of places to watch free movies online and we’ve compiled a list that have the largest amount of movies, are safe for your computer or TV, and are legal for you to use. Many of these websites also have free movie apps so you can access the free movies on your mobile device.

These aren’t movie clips or previews, they are free full-length movies that you can watch beginning to end (with perhaps a few commercial interruptions). All genres of movies can be found, from comedy to drama to horror to action. There are kids movies, popular TV series and thought provoking documentaries. There are Hollywood blockbusters to older or independent movies that many of us love to watch over and over again:
