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.
