Libraries Week is Fast Approaching!

Published 13th September 2018

Libraries Week takes place between 8-13 October to celebrate our wonderful libraries. This year, there is a focus to celebrate how our libraries improve wellbeing.

 At Inspire Learning, our courses are often delivered at your local library, therefore it was important to us to participate in Libraries Week. There is much more to libraries than just reading books-libraries bring our communities together and provide a space for creativity, learning and reading.

It’s not just the fact that we offer a wide range of Health and Wellbeing courses at Inspire Learning, any of our courses in our libraries are amazing for improving our wellbeing and mental health. Whether it be an Access to Higher Education Course that you complete with us or simply a fun Community Learning Workshop, just by leaving the house to participate you will be combatting loneliness and entering in to a new community. You will meet like-minded people with similar interests. We can guarantee that your course group and friendly tutor will become like a second family to you.

Our courses are an opportunity to learn something new and get creative, all which positively contribute to our mental health.

To celebrate Libraries Week, Inspire Learning have decided to run more courses than usual with a focus on wellbeing. Keep an eye on this webpage, as we will be adding more and more courses each day. Also watch out on social media (Facebook @InspireLearningSkills and Twitter @Learn_Inspire) for our Libraries Week social takeover.
