Harvey Library invited adults back to the classroom for a day to take part in its Armchair Experts event as part of Adult Learners Week.

A suite of activities took place throughout the day including a photo editing workshop with Ms Campbell-Hicks, a relaxing hand massage from Myalup’s Romy Kidd and a garden workshop with Roma Murray.

Red Cross migration support programs national project manager Sian Gair came down from Perth to give a talk on encouraging support for refuges. Harvey principal librarian Ruth Campbell-Hicks said the celebration aligned closely with the core values of the library staff.

“The library is a great place to go for all kinds of learning, and we saw this as an opportunity to offer something extra for our local adults.”

Adult Learners Week in Australia is part of an international festival of adult learning which promotes and celebrates the benefits of learning.
