Library Family Learning Festival

Closed 31 Oct 2017

Opened 14 Oct 2017


Family Learning Festival: your reading adventure!

The Campaign for Learning organises the Family Learning Festival each October.  This year has the theme of start your adventure.  This is a great opportunity to start your adventure with reading.  Books are a great way for families to learn and have fun together.  This can be through learning to read and sharing stories together, as well as through using a book to learn a skill.  West Sussex Library Service would like to know more about the books that are your family favourites and to know how about the skills you have gained from a book.


Why We Are Consulting

The favourite books to keep and to pass on that you tell us about will be used to create a book list to share with West Sussex Library customers.  If you wish you can also be entered into a free prize draw where one lucky person will be drawn at random to win 1 copy of each of the ten most popular books on the list. 

The information you share about how books have helped you to learn something will provide a valuable insight for library staff in to how the collections of library books are used.




What Happens Next

We will announce the winner of the Prize Draw once the draw has taken place.  In the meantime here is some information about other library events and services you may be interested in:
