Why adult learning? Why is it important, especially for libraries? The needs encompassed by adult learning can be as fundamental as basic literacy and high school completion—and can extend through career exploration and readiness, reskilling or upskilling, and lifelong learning as a leisure pursuit. Libraries, as accessible, welcoming, community-building organizations, are uniquely situated to either fill gaps in delivering these services or play a primary role in connecting with adults on their learning journeys.
Are you looking to help adults in your community advance their education, upskill, and grow in their careers? Watch the latest American Libraries Live for a rich discussion with leading library professionals from Enoch Pratt Free Library, Rockford Public Library, and San Diego Public Library. In this webinar, panelists share how they identify gaps in adult education, evaluate opportunities to close them, and make it easier for adults to achieve their dreams.
