Borrowing BBC micro:bits

All Norfolk libraries have micro:bits to lend for free.

With a BBC micro:bit, you can code all sorts of cool creations, from music to robots to your own Hogwarts Sorting Hat.

The device has many features, including 25 red LEDs that can flash messages, two programmable buttons that can be used to control games, and motion and direction detectors.

How to borrow a micro:bit

Visit the library with your library card.

  • You can borrow the micro:bit for up to three weeks, subject to availability
  • When the three weeks is up you can renew your micro:bit loan if there is not a waiting list
  • Each Norfolk Library micro:bit box comes with a safety and quick start guide
