Cheshire West and Chester libraries are taking part in Adult Learners' Week

Cheshire West and Chester Libraries will be hosting a variety of events as part of the nationwide Festival of Learning for Adult Learners' Week, which takes place between 13 June and 19 June.

The Libraries Service is inviting local residents to try their hand at a range of new skills or take part in taster sessions at their local library.

All the events are free and cover a variety of different interests, from finding out all about 'Your Library Online', to writing your own piece of 'Flash Fiction' or short story, making paper craft jewellery, researching family history or how to use a defibrillator.

The Festival of Learning, led by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) invites organisations and communities to take part in adult learning activities, to highlight the wide range of opportunities and resources available to adults, hoping to continue or resume their education.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Wellbeing said: "We will be showcasing throughout the week what our libraries have to offer because Adult Learning is an important part of what we do.

"Our doors are open to anyone who is interested in learning new skills and our staff will help residents' kick-start their learning journey. Please come and see the different courses that are available, open to all ages".

For more information on all the events during Adult Learners' Week please contact Tarvin library or visit www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/libraries.
