This November, 15 public library systems in the US and Canada will run free learning circles for hundreds of library members who will learn together for 6 to 8 weeks. Topics reflect a broad range of interests, including refugee rights, healthy eating, public speaking, and computer science.
Lifelong learning for a changing workforce, busting stereotypes about older learners, fostering a culture of lifelong learning and more stories about adult and community education are featured in this week's news round up.
