The Festival of Learning is being held in libraries across Northern Ireland during May and June, giving you the opportunity to learn something new.

Libraries NI invites you to take part in a programme of free events to celebrate lifelong learning for adults which includes a range of talks, workshops and demonstrations.

Libraries will host a series of free events to help your health, confidence and career and have a positive effect on your family, friends and colleagues.

Events will cover a diverse range of subject such as art, crafts, local history, eBooks, eMagazines and IT sessions.

Building on the success of 24 years of Adult Learners’ Weeks, the Festival of Learning (www.festivaloflearning.org.uk) is a national celebration of lifelong learning - because learning changes lives.

Whether you already love to learn, would like to have a go and learn something new, or are involved in helping others learn, the Festival of Learning is for you. You never know, you may discover your hidden talents, make new friends or find a new hobby!

Kim Aiken, Head of Themes (Learning), Libraries NI: “Libraries NI has always played a role in adult learning by providing free courses and workshops to people across Northern Ireland through our vast network of 96 public libraries. Libraries make the perfect venue for people to enjoy learning, offering a welcoming and relaxed environment where people can learn at their own speed and ability, with professional and helpful library staff on hand to provide any support required.”
