Libraries Week: Learning in Libraries Special!

jeremy, October 10 2017

Libraries Week is here across the UK, celebrating the all that libraries have to offer to the community. It’s not just our books that inform and inspire, from events to courses to drop-in taster sessions across Hampshire Libraries… What better way to find out than at our range of Learning In Libraries courses?

Would you like to learn a new skill, maybe a new language, learn to paint or become a photographer? Learning in Libraries provides an extensive choice of informal courses and workshops in Hampshire County Council Libraries, with the intention of offering learning opportunities at a time, location and price that suits you.
We also offer free courses in some areas, depending on availability, for those who need to improve their digital skills, are socially isolated or could benefit from improved health and well-being as well as those looking for work.
Why not take a look at whats on offer at your local Library, you will be amazed at what you could learn!
