What is a Virtual Learning Event?

The Very Airy Library Virtual Event is a live broadcast from the set of The Very Airy Library directly to your schools and homes, and yes, it's actually live! Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes and features host Stan Tucker delivering a topical message on a timely subject.

It's like bringing a special assembly into your class or home without the cost! Teachers, parents and kids love it!

All virtual events free with the purchase of a flight crew reading mission for your class or home.
