Libraries at Skipton and Ingleton hold Family Learning Festival activities
8:00am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
Two Craven libraries are about to make a fantastic journey.
Skipton and Ingleton libraries are taking part in this year’s Family Learning Festival, intended to give families the opportunity to help each other with their learning while increasing confidence and improving skills.
Research shows that a child’s family can have a massively positive influence on their learning by getting involved and taking an active interest in their studies.
This year’s theme is Fantastic Journeys.
Skipton Library will hold its event on Tuesday, October 29, while Ingleton’s will take place the following day and will include Rocket to the Moon stories and bonfire-themed activities.
County Coun Chris Metcalfe, executive member for libraries and community services, said: “Libraries are all about learning so it’s great to see them throwing their weight behind this year’s family festival.
“They have organised a wide range of events and have teamed up with partners to encourage families to try new things together.”
