A POPULAR coding programme is proving to be a success at libraries across Warrington.

Code Club teaches children aged between nine and 13 the skills required to create animations, websites and games.

The digital skills that the club teaches are considered vital in many children’s futures.

The Code Club has been introduced at LiveWire’s Lymm, Westbrook and Padgate library bases and is proving to be a big hit with every session fully booked and waiting lists being created to support the demand.

Senior LiveWire adviser, Christine Everett, said: “We are delighted with the response to Code Club both in terms of the number of children attending every week and in terms of the brilliant feedback we have had from children and parents.

“I am amazed how quickly the children are picking up the coding skills and starting to code independently. It is also lovely to see that they are now helping each other, developing new skills and learning together.”

LiveWire’s strategic library manager, Wendy Molyneux, added: “There is only one word to describe The Code Club - fantastic.”
