Run by James Burgess, the activity for children aged over eight is held every other Saturday, from 10.30am to 12pm.

Scratch coding is a visual programming language and online community targeted mainly at children and first appeared around 17 years ago.

The library, situated in Buckshorn Lane for the past 40 years, moved to Cross Street last month.

The new library includes wheeled shelving, accessible toilet facilities and a meeting room for hire.

Some of the regular activities for children held at the site include Baby Bounce, where soothing songs and gentle nursery rhymes are sung; Tot Rock, a similar event for toddlers; a reading group; and art and craft activities for children.
