Are you interested in learning something new? Then Adult Learners Week is the week for you to set off on your learning adventure.

People across Tasmania are invited to connect with learning and discover hidden talents at their local library during Adult Learners Week; celebrated nationally from 1 to 8 September.

Libraries Tasmania offers the chance for adults of all ages and backgrounds to try something new, whether it’s a free class to update your computer skills or chatting to a staff member about the possibilities of enrolling in formal learning.

“Libraries are special places that offer people a chance to learn all sorts of things,” said Josie Chapman, Community Learning Coordinator. “Adult Learners Week reminds us that learning is a lifelong pursuit, which doesn’t end when we leave school. Learning opportunities at the library are free, friendly, low pressure and about keeping ourselves curious.”

Adults can explore their passions through adult education classes, enjoy family history research, improve their English language skills by joining a conversation group, or develop their literacy, numeracy, and digital literacy just to name a few.

Libraries Tasmania also offers free information and support to adults who want to connect with learning through the Lifelong Learning Information Service. Just visit your local library and talk to one of our friendly staff or call 1800 808 303 for more information.

Adult Learners Week classes around Tasmania can be booked via Eventbrite or by contacting any of the 45 public libraries across Tasmania.
