Autumn is upon us and with the change of the seasons, many new learners and volunteers are reaching out to the Halifax Community Learning Network to volunteer or study with us.
The HCLN ended the program year in June on a high note. Year-end parties took place at all program locations and everyone had the opportunity to celebrate a busy year of learning and to share their stories from the 2018 yearbook, Finding My Voice.
One of the many achievements of note this past year was Carson Fraser of the Halifax North Adult Learning Program being recognized with the Literacy Nova Scotia Gary Mason Award for his hard work and amazing progress. Here is Carson sharing his story at the LNS AGM with his tutor Natalie.
On June 19th, HCLN presented the first ever Constance Glube Adult Learning Award at the Central Library. So many wonderful entries and happy faces that evening. A special thank you to the Glube family for their support and to flautist Ogo-Oluwa Sobukola for providing a lovely soundtrack.
Now with September behind us, programs are in full swing at several branches of the Halifax Public Libraries and at the Captain William Spry Community Centre.
Happy fall and we hope you will consider learning or volunteering with us!
