How do a borrow a micro:bit?
You must be 8 years old or older to borrow a micro:bit from Barnet libraries.
Starter kits are free to borrow and contain a micro:bit, a mini-USB cable and a battery pack (2 AAA batteries are required but not provided), along with some instructions to get you started … which means you can unleash your digital creativity in the comfort of your own bedroom – and get your family involved too!
micro:bits are available to borrow from all Barnet libraries. We issue it to your library card, just like a book - so be aware that you must renew it online, by phone or in person at the library to ensure you don't get a fine - charged at 5p per day overdue.
If you are a bit more advanced and want to push your coding skills further you can try the Python editor instead.
