Programs for Life-long Learning

The Library strives to provide interesting programs for an adventure in life-long learning. While we have a few programs that meet monthly, we also include additional events for life enrichment, personal growth, and inspiration.



  • Wed, June 7 @6p.m.
    Presented by Bonnie St. Denis, a Wilton Method Instructor

    This 2-hour class will provide students with the opportunity to experience and learn cake-decorating basics in easy, step-by-step instructions. All decorating supplies and tools will be provided, but each student must bring 6-8 un-iced cupcakes and a container in which to bring home the decorated treats. Each student will also take home the contents of the Wilton Cupcake Kit! The cost of the workshop is $25. Please call to register for this free program or sign up on our calendar page.

  • Wed, June 14 @ 6 p.m.
    Presented by Sam Hoffman, an Elizabethtown resident experienced in section hikes.

    Hoffman will talk about the history of the Appalachian Trail, what section hiking is, and how to best begin to section hike. Hoffman has section-hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine twice, and will share hike experiences and tips. Please call to register for this free program or sign up on our calendar page.


  • Mon, June 26 @ 10:30am


    Presented by Barbara Basile, Library Director and Creative Soul.

The Library’s director Barbara Basile will present this month’s Lifelong Learners program. Basile will show participants how to recycle glass items from flea markets, thrift stores, or the back of the cupboard and turn them into whimsical art pieces for the garden, porch, or patio. Please call to register for this free program or sign up on our calendar page.


  • Mon, June 26 @ 6pm


    Presented by Poet Ingrid Andersen.

Andersen focuses on the process of setting aside one’s critical voice, drawing on the creativity within in order to give it expression.  This workshop is particularly helpful for those who struggle to put aside the inner editor in order to express themselves creatively.  Please call to register for this free workshop; limit 20 participants.

The Library is also host to a Quilt Study that gathers at the Library the second Wednesday of every other month from 12:30 to 3:30. Anyone is welcome to explore the history, craftsmanship and patterning of a different quilt each time. The group is led by Ann Holte.
