AN open day on Tuesday will kick start a new season of adult learning classes at Beccles Library this autumn.

Community Learning and Skills Development at the Leap Centre, based at the library in Blyburgate, will outline new courses on offer, including arts and crafts, job application skills and self-confidence classes, between 10am and 3pm.

There will be a floristry taster session from 11am to 2pm, where you can learn how to make a table decoration, and there will also be some goody bags to take away.

Most of the courses offered are free, including maths and English courses which offer the opportunity to gain the equivalent of a GCSE.

“Leisure learning” courses on offer, which cost £3.95 an hour, include floral design, digital photography, yoga and Spanish for beginners.

The library will also be putting on its own classes, including a basic internet taster course that shows how to book a library computer, how to use Suffolk Libraries Direct and how to

search using web addresses and

keywords.

There will be a computer course for absolute beginners, where participants will be taught how to “boot up” a computer and use a mouse and keyboard. The course is two sessions, which each last two

hours.

Classes are also available to help people research their family history online, and take place on the fourth Thursday of each month from 2pm- 2.30pm and 2.30pm-3pm. Sessions must be booked in advance.

Anyone who registered for the summer reading challenge held by

the library still has time to

complete it. The closing date is September 13.
