This week is Adult Learners’ Week. What’s it all about?
Adult Learners’ Week is a national celebration of the benefits of lifelong learning. We’re getting involved with writing workshops, singing, cooking, and facebook sessions – for details see our events calendar.
But why are libraries getting involved?
Spring has arrived! The flowers bud, newborn animals lay in the fields; and the sky transforms from the dark grey snows of winter, to the dull grey constant rain that all other seasons in the British Isles consist of.
Join thousands of eBook readers around the world by taking part in the first ever Big Library Read of an eBook!
The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone is available all library members to borrow until 1 June. So get together with your friends and family or your book group for a wild ride full of twists and turns, a story of love, secrets and the mysterious bonds of families.
At the end of each of our Edinburgh Reads author events we ask the audience to fill in feedback forms telling us what they thought of the evening.
At last week’s event with Richard Holloway the same words kept coming up: candour, candid, openness, honesty.
People were also struck by Richard’s relaxed style, his sense of humour and thoughtfulness; but it was our speaker’s frankness that seemed to make the biggest impression.
