Take the leap this Adult Learners’ Week

Cessnock City Library is encouraging adults of all ages to take the leap and rediscover learning during Adult Learners’ Week from 1-8 September.

Cessnock City Library is encouraging adults of all ages to take the leap and rediscover learning during Adult Learners’ Week from 1-8 September.

This year Adult Learners’ Week is all about celebrating those who have taken a leap, rediscovered learning and the difference it has made in their lives.  

For some, rediscovering learning may have led to a new job or career change and for others it could be about gaining essential life skills, giving back to their community or building confidence. Or it could simply be about pursuing a new passion or interest.  

Library Coordinator, Rose-marie Walters said, “Eight million Australians learn for work or pleasure each year and Adult Learners’ Week is the perfect time to come down to the library and take that learning leap in a safe and supportive environment.”

  • Monday 4 Sep Cessnock Library 4pm Lantern Making Workshop for the whole family
