Registration and payment are required in advance.


REGISTRATION:    BY TELEPHONE ONLY (1-800-638-4752). Classes cost $50 per one full-day session (2-day classes cost $100 and half-day classes cost $25). These fees are payable in advance by check made out to Highlands Regional Library Cooperative. Registering for a class is an important commitment. The costs of programming are highly subsidized by the HRLC and our aim is to have all classes filled to capacity! IF YOU MUST CANCEL AFTER YOU HAVE REGISTERED, please call us as soon as possible so we can try to fill your place from our waiting list. DON'T BE A "NO-SHOW!"

UPDATED CANCELLATION POLICY:    You may cancel up to ten days before a scheduled class without penalty and receive a credit for another class. If you cancel less than ten days before, you will be responsible for payment. Class payments are NON-REFUNDABLE. HRLC reserves the right to cancel any class that is less than 60% full within 4 business days of the class. If HRLC cancels a class, you will receive a credit toward another class.

TIMES:    Classes begin promptly. Times for all sessions are noted in the Course Descriptions and/or on the Course Confirmation/Payment Form.

WAITING LISTS:    If a class is full, we will be happy to put your name on a waiting list. We will contact you if an opening becomes available. Waiting lists expire at the end of every quarter. Classes are often repeated so watch for the next class schedule and sign up again!

FOOD AND BEVERAGES:    NO FOOD OR BEVERAGE is allowed in the Training Centers and NO REFRESHMENTS OR MEALS WILL BE PROVIDED. During full-day classes there will be a one hour "on your own" lunch break as well as a short morning and afternoon break. At the Somerset County Library, TTC participants are not permitted in the staff lounge and no longer have access to staff vending machines. There are some restaurants a short drive away. At the Bergen TTC there is a deli/bagel shop within walking distance. TTC participants are not permitted in the staff lunch area at the Bergen TTC, but there is now a lounge area where eating is permitted.

PARKING:    Bergen TTC - Parking in the area is limited. If parking is not available in the parking lot behind the building, parking along the street is permitted.

Somerset TTC - Please park in the library's "upper lot." To reach this lot, take the second entrance to the parking lot, which is actually in front of the Somerset Vocational Technical School area. Please do not use the staff entrance into the building. Use the library's front, public entrance. The TTC is on the left side of the lobby.

INCLEMENT WEATHER:    In the event of inclement weather on the day of a workshop, call the Regional Office at 1-800-NET-HRLC after 7:30 a.m. for a message on the status of the workshop.
