Lifelong Learning

 

 

Our Lifelong Learning programs are designed for anyone who wants to expand and enjoy their education. Each month we will concentrate on different areas of Science or History. At the end of each month, we will look at a particular year and see how world history was altered by the events of that year. The programs last approx. 60 minutes, and you can come to any or all of them. Each program is free and there is no need to register beforehand.

All of these programs are held in the downstairs meeting room. You can park behind the library and enter the meeting room directly.
