BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Starting in April, SCLSNJ libraries will begin hosting a new program series aimed at encouraging lifelong learning for adult, whether aged 18 or aged 81. 

“The premise of our new Coffee Time Talks series is to provide talks on three main topics: technology, health and wellness, and humanities,” said Marcela Dunham, system programming coordinator at SCLSNJ.

“We have excellent speakers, including local authors and experts in their fields, who will present one-hour talks on a variety of topics in these categories: from JFK to preventing falls, from safely searching the internet to hearing loss," she added. "The programs include time for questions, socializing, and more. Our libraries are sources of lifelong learning for our community; they’re places to connect, share, explore, and discover. We created this series to offer more opportunities to do just that.”
