Center for Lifelong Learning

 

 

How CLL Began …

In 1993, the Center for Lifelong Learning was founded by a group of local citizens who believe that many men and women might welcome the opportunity for intellectual stimulation and the chance to enhance their knowledge in many subjects of their choice. Knowledgeable instructors who are authorities in their fields selflessly volunteer many hours in order to teach the classes.

How You Can Join CLL

We welcome adults of all ages and no special educational background is required.  Active discussion and interaction in class will be encouraged.  A membership fee of $40 (Kinnelon residents) or $50 (non-Kinnelon resident) will allow you to register for and attend as many courses as you wish each semester.  Some courses have class size limits, and some courses require additional book or material fees.  

Please refer to the Spring / Fall semester information below for details, or contact the Center for Lifelong Learning by calling 973-838-1321 x4 or by emailing friends.cll@kinnelonlibrary.org
