Minecraft Project

The Minecraft Project was funded by the Public Library Quality Improvement Fund (PLIF) and is run in partnership with Bounce Higher – The Children and Family Work Programme at St. Andrew's Church, Bo’ness. They work with and support children, young people and families in Bo’ness.

The project aims to change the perceptions of the children involved in regards to libraries and convert them into customers. The project gathered together a group of children aged between 7 and 12. The children work together using the game Minecraft on PS4s to create digital representations of Bo’ness landmarks. The buildings selected by the children were Bo’ness Library, Kinneil House and St Andrew’s Church.

The digital representations encompass the interior and exterior of the buildings as interpreted by the children. They can be navigated using the Minecraft avatar 'Steve’. The children have also become ‘YouTubers’ by creating videos of their creations and sharing them on YouTube.
