The festival is the biggest annual celebration of family learning in the UK and takes place from Saturday 15 October to Sunday 30 October.

The Get Online Week (from Monday 17 October)is coordinated by Tinder Foundation and the UK online centres network. It brings digital skills and know-how to everyone.

County Councillor Chris Metcalfe, executive member for library and information services, said: “It’s great to learn new things as a family and libraries across the county are offering the opportunity to do just that, with a wide variety of activities for free or just a small charge.”
