The Carlisle Institute for Lifelong Learning at Bosler Memorial Library (CLL) provides programs and courses to engage adults in learning at any age and stage of life.  The Institute was initiated by a group of community members with the vision of creating a setting for personal growth, social opportunities, and intellectual stimulation.


The goals of the Carlisle Institute for Lifelong Learning are as follows:

· To create a COMMUNITY of lifelong learners.

· To create OPPORTUNITIES for lifelong learning.

· To ENRICH and CHALLENGE the lives of lifelong learners.


The Carlisle Institute for Lifelong Learning offers many single-session programs, multi-session courses, and ongoing activities and clubs facilitated by knowledgeable volunteers from a variety of backgrounds. Offerings cover a wide-range of subject matter including arts, civics, culture, finance, humanities, philosophy, religion, science and more –- with a mix of practical and academic topics.
