  • Adults Programming

    Last modified:

    We run a wide range of programmes and events for adults, and they are all free.


    During the year we offer Kick Start adult learning classes, and Book a Librarian sessions for one-on-one help with a trained librarian. These require registration, so be sure to check out their relevant pages.


    Each week we run a series of programmes for adults. No registrations required just pop along. Check out the list below, and for a full list of library programmes and events be sure to check out the events calendar.
