Learning resources

Our collection is full of fascinating information that we want to share.

We want to open the doors of the Library to our local community. Thanks to Heritage Lottery Funding in 2009 we were able to create free teaching materials for schools. 

Our most recent publication is a 2016 learning pack about WW1 conscientious objectors - click here for details.

WCML would like to know what you think of the resources downloadable from this page. We would be very grateful for your feedback to help us improve the resources we provide.

Our free learning resources are available for downloading.
