Generation Code 2020
Generation Code: Born at the Library is going online this year!
Our interactive exhibition showcasing the top innovative digital exhibits from public libraries across the EU will be happening here. Europe’s 65,000 public libraries are a uniquely accessible space for users (both children and adults) to improve their digital skills. In the EU, over 2,3 million people a year attend a digital literacy course in their library, learning anything from basic digital skills to coding. It is a time for celebrating the amazing work that public libraries do every day in filling the digital gap of our communities.
As library buildings shut across Europe this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, libraries quickly moved to online activities to maintain contact with their community. We are excited to present what public libraries across the EU have been doing for digital education and digital societies in a time where we cannot always meet. Make sure to check out the Library Lab and explore what Europe’s libraries have to offer even when the buildings are shut!
Join us for various webinars over the two days with experts who are ready to answer your burning questions on everything EU Code Week, Digital Education Action Plan, data privacy and more!
Join us for various online activities on October 13 and 14!

Explore what Europe's public libraries have to offer when the buildings are shut but digital education and digital societies must go on!
