 Our Program

The Adventures in Lifelong Learning program is a collaboration between Framingham State University and Framingham Public Library. Beginning in Fall 2011 and dedicated to promoting healthy living among older adults by providing academic enrichment, intellectual stimulation, and social support, the program is funded by membership fees and donations. Our refreshments have been donated by Panera Bread (Rte. 30, Framingham) - many thanks. We also thank the MetroWest Health Foundation who provided funding for the three initial years of the program, ending April 2014.

Are you interested in history, literature, music, art history and more? Classes, geared toward seniors, are offered in sessions scheduled in March and October. Class brochures with registration forms are available during the month before the session begins.

If you would be interested in receiving information, please click here and we will send you more information. You can also reach us at
