BRANTFORD, ON – Lifelong Learning Week from September 15 to 22, 2018, offers free events such as cooking classes, learning how to code with your kids, historical walking tours and more. Presented by Graduate Brantford and the Brantford Public Library, more than 30 free events will provide residents with a chance to pick up a new skill or hobby and discover local education and career options.

Dozens of organizations and individuals in the community are offering their expertise and opening their doors to showcase all of the amazing activities and services available in Brantford.

On September 19 at 2:00 p.m., Graduate Brantford is inviting the public to a special event to celebrate and inspire lifelong learning at the Branford Public Library and launch the Graduate Brantford Strategy: Building a Community of Learning. Residents will hear inspirational stories from the community. Refreshments will be provided.

Graduate Brantford is a community-wide initiative led by the City of Brantford in partnership with local organizations, providers of education, employers, and the community with the goal of assisting citizens of all ages to increase current levels of education.

Other free Lifelong Learning events include dance classes, lawn bowling, social media lessons and more. The full event list can be found on the Brantford Public Library’s website, brantford.library.on.ca. All events are offered to all residents for free, but some do require complimentary registration, as space is limited.
