17/1/19Makerspace session: ‘Setting Up Your Socials’
A practical session with Peta Lawrence (Senior Digital Services Officer, Surrey Libraries) in which you will have the opportunity to learn more about social media, following on from last term’s session. Concentrating on Facebook, we will make sure your social media accounts are secure & also look at the notifications settings so that your social media doesn’t control you.
24/1/19Learning To Program Together: working alongside each other on free online courses from Codecademy to learn programming skills & the Python programming language. This will be a chance to learn together, in a supportive environment, & share our frustrations & (hopefully) successes.
On the Codecademy website it says:
Why Learn Python?
Python is a general-purpose, versatile & popular programming language. It’s great as a first language because it is concise & easy to read, & it is also a good language to have in any programmer’s stack as it can be used for everything from web development to software development & scientific applications.
Take-Away Skills:
This course is a great introduction to both fundamental programming concepts & the Python programming language. By the end, you’ll be comfortable programming in Python & taking your skills off the Codecademy platform onto your own computer.”

If you are a confident coder & would like to support others in learning to program, particularly with Python, please contact us; your help would be very much appreciated!

31/1/19Publishing in a Digital Age: Poet & writer Haley Jenkins, from Selcouth Station, will share with us what it is like to set up your own press while working fulltime, Selcouth Station’s mission statement & how they hope to expand in the future. Ash Green (Digital Services Lead, Surrey Libraries) will be looking at book review blogs for different genres.
Selcouth Station, the dream of Haley Jenkins, is a website dedicated to supporting & promoting the work of indie artists, writers, gamers & any other creative entrepreneurs who want to get their work ‘out there’. They have published three chapbooks & are set to publish 3 or 4 more after their recent call for chapbooks on ‘Love’. They hope to begin publishing solo collections in 2019. They often provide feedback & work with other small presses in order to build a community.
