- This article is about Scratch libraries. For the general programming feature, see Library.
Libraries are sections in project editors were the user can select an example sprite or background. In Scratch 1.4, some sprites included in the library had premade scripts. Libraries are useful for those who either cannot create or have media to upload.
This library is used to get premade sprites, sometimes including multiple costumes, on projects. There are 369 sprites in the library.
The sprites library contains many example sprites. Every library is sorted into categories. The sprites library is sorted into the following categories. Animals, Fantasy, Letters, People, Things, and Transportation.
The sprites library is sorted into the following themes. Castle, City, Flying, Holiday, Music and Dance, Space, Sports, Underwater and Walking.
Only the sprites and costumes library are sorted into types, which are the following. All types, Bitmap, or Vector.
This library is used to get premade backdrops on projects. There are 103 backdrops in the library.
The backdrops library is sorted into the following categories. All categories, Indoors, outdoors, and other.
The backdrops library is sorted into the following categories. Castle, City, Flying, Holiday, Music and Dance, Nature, Space, Sports and Underwater.
This library is used to get pre-made sounds on projects. Sounds can be previewed by clicking the play button to the right of the desired sound. There are 239 sounds in the library.
The sounds library is separated into the following categories. All categories, Animal, Effects, Electronic, Human, Instruments, Music Loops, Percussion, and Vocals.
It has the same features as the Sprites Library except it only has single premade costumes and not multiple premade costumes. There are 704 costumes in the library. It can be sorted in to the same categories, themes and types as the sprite library.
In Scratch 3.0, the tab for tutorials was moved to a new library called the Tutorial Library. It is linked from a button at the top bar with a lightbulb.There are a total of 20 tutorials there, which if clicked, returns to the project editor and opens a Project Tutorial with a video that shows the tutorial. Pressing the arrow takes one to a step-by-step instructions area, with a "More Things to Try" at the end.
