Adult Programming

At the Kinnelon Library, we have a wide range of adult programs to appeal to every sensibility.  Our goal is to inspire, educate, and promote the well-being of the public.  Our past offerings have included drawing workshops, cooking classes, numerous history lectures, craft classes, supernatural seminars, ballroom dance, and concerts.  We also have a wide range of ongoing programs, such as knitting, an adult book club, drop-in crafts, and exercise classes.

What if?-Thursday, March 28 at 6:30 PM– You set a murder mystery in Kinnelon and its surroundings—or a romantic comedy or a ghost story or a period drama or a horror flick or a gangster movie. Together, using our imaginations triggered by observations of local life and incidents, we’ll begin to do just that: laying the foundations for what one day—who knows?—might become a feature film or television series or a stage play. Magic is just under the surface of everyday life, but it requires the habit of thinking in   narrative terms to turn it into a story. Bring your memories of Kinnelon, perhaps a tale you might have heard, an old photo, etc., but most of all bring your unfettered imagination. Ron Hutchinson, an Emmy-winning writer for television, movies, and the stage, has known Kinnelon for many years and recently lived here full time after spending 30 years in Hollywood. In this interactive event he will talk about how he has always seen the community as a rich source of stories, characters, and visual effects and then invite the   audience members to look at their own very familiar neighborhood—and neighbors—the  way a filmmaker or playwright would.
