Norfolk Heritage Centre launches history club sessions for children and young adults
29 December 2017
Children and young people in Norfolk can get a head start on their history homework in the New Year with sessions at Norfolk & Norwich Millennium Library.
Norfolk Heritage Centre will be holding a History Homework Club drop in every Wednesday afternoon to give young people help with their homework or study projects, starting 10 January.
The sessions will give them a chance to access books, resources, and staff advice, and have a quiet space to study in a focused way.
They can also use computers or make use of the library’s WiFi using their own devices.
Also starting in January is History Hunters, a monthly group for 10-14 year olds to encourage them to become archive explorers, uncover the hidden treasures in Norfolk Heritage Centre’s collection, and even create a podcast. The first session will take place 27 January.
Booking is essential for these six sessions which will take place once a month.
Chairman of Norfolk County Council’s Communities Committee, Councillor Margaret Dewsbury, said: “As we’re heading towards the New Year and the school year is nearly half-way through, it’s great that Norfolk Heritage Centre is holding these sessions. They are not only a great way to help your child get on top of their homework, but also to become more familiar with how to use library and archive resources for their future studies.”No booking is required for the weekly History Homework Club, but to book on to the monthly History Hunters sessions please call 01603 774781.
