Libraries Connected NW Learn Fest in Lancashire libraries

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Lancashire libraries will take part in the first regional Libraries Connected NW Learn Fest next month.

The two-week long family-focused festival, from Monday 10 September to Monday 24 September, will feature an exciting programme of events, workshops and activities.

This festival aims to bring learning to life and will offer opportunities to try something new, develop skills and to learn new things. Events for people of all ages to enjoy will be available including Relax and De-stress sessions, and Be Food Smart.

County Councillor Peter Buckley, cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "I'm delighted that our libraries are taking part in the first ever Libraries Connected NW Learn Fest.

"There will be events, activities and workshops taking place at the libraries, for all ages to enjoy.

"I hope that the festival will encourage people to try something new and that this opportunity inspires them for the future. There should be something for everyone."

There's no need to book places, you can just turn up.

All of the events, activities and workshops taking place at the library are free.

The festival is being organised by library services across the North West, to showcase the range of informal learning opportunities offered in local communities.
