Lewisham Council - Learning in libraries

Learning in libraries

Lifelong learning is about learning for leisure and interest (informal learning), as well as for college or work (formal learning).

Our libraries are the best places to find out about and pursue lifelong learning, because they have wide range of resources, a relaxed atmosphere and helpful staff.

Find out about the range of library services for children and young people.

First Choice Books

If you are new to reading, or if English is not your first language, a good way to begin is with First Choice Books. We have a wide selection of these titles in our libraries. If you would like to find out more, visit the First Choice Books website or come into any of our libraries.

Never used the Internet? Do you want to learn?

Then come to one of our libraries and use Learn My Way, the easy way to find out how  to use the internet.

Learn My Way is a free, simple introduction to the internet and the wealth of services that are available. Learn how to surf the web quickly and without any fuss.

Please contact the following libraries for further information and to book free sessions.
