We had great fun coding with micro:bits at West End Library this morning! Here are two young people playing the "reaction" game they created: when the symbol appears on the LED display, they have to be the quickest to press the button on their side of the micro:bit to win the point. One of them's trying to cheat but it doesn't always work! #microbits #MicrobitsInLibraries #coding #codegreen #LearnInLibraries #quickreaction #cheatingatgames
There was a fantastic response to the excellent performance by 'Pipers Fancy' last Saturday at the City Library.  For everyone who enjoyed or missed the performance, Iain Gelston will be piping in the Bewick Hall next Saturday 19th August, and 'Musical Folk Trefoil Guild and Friends' will be performing #folkmusic and #piping in the Bewick Hall the following Saturday, 26th August.
We're looking forward to hosting @brickthis LEGO model of the Civic Centre at the City Library in early September! #bricks #LEGOciviccentre #legoarchitecture #newcastleinbricks #heritageopendays #heritageopendays2017

Harry the dog at Cruddas Park Library is ready for the Summer Reading Challenge! Young readers can join in any library and take on the challenge of reading at least 6 books over the summer... We have it from a good source that there are stickers, bookmarks and games as incentives #SummerReadingChallenge #animalagents #dogteddy #bookmarks #childrenevents #childrensbooks #reading #books #librariesofinstagram

This month marks the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen. A good excuse - in case any was needed! - to learn more about the author's life, watch the film & TV adaptations of her novels, or try one of her books that you've never read before... By the way, which would you recommend? #janeausten #janeausten200 #favouriteenglishauthors #prideandprejudice #emma #senseandsensibility #northangerabbey #mansfieldpark #persuasion
