Libraries NI invites you to learn something new through a programme of free events, which will be held in local libraries, to mark Adult Learners’ Week, from 12th - 18th May 2012.
Adult Learners’ Week (ALW) is the UK’s largest annual festival of learning; inspiring thousands of people each year to find out how learning can change their lives.
ALW celebrates all kinds of learning, in all kinds of venues - in colleges, community centres, libraries, women’s groups and workplaces and Libraries NI is delighted to support this festival by holding a range of events for people to enjoy across Northern Ireland.
Kim Aiken, Learning Development Manager, Libraries NI, explains:
“Adult Learners’ Week 2012 gives adults the chance to take part in some unique events and activities to help them learn something new, from craft workshops to family history sessions. We would like to invite people to participate in this busy programme of free events being held in selected libraries across Northern Ireland to celebrate Adult Learners' Week.”
There is a range of free events and activities being held during Adult Learners’ Week to suit all hobbies and interests.
