Why does the Adult School Department ask for my contact information? We use contact information to communicate class changes or cancellations. 

Is there a registration fee? Yes. A non refundable registration fee of $10.00 is charged once per person, per calendar year,  
per non-Montclair resident. 

Do I have to sign a waiver? For certain classes, the Montclair Public Library requires that all students participating must sign a waiver. This does not apply to online classes.

What if I do not want to sign a waiver? If you do not sign a waiver and have already registered, we will remove you from class. 

Why won't the system allow me to register? If the class is full, there will be a solid red box visible. You may choose to put yourself on the waiting list at this point. 

How do I get a catalog? Catalogs are distributed to local libraries and as newspaper inserts. You can also click on the image of the catalog on the homepage for our flipdoc. You may also click on the pdf version below to download and print.

Who is eligible to take Adult School classes? Classes are open to students of high-school age and older, unless otherwise indicated in the course description. You do not need to be a Montclair resident to register for a class. 

When do onsite classes meet? Onsite classes run year round. Visit the website often for details.

What if I am dissatisfied with my class? Please contact the office immediately and we will try our best to
address your concerns!! 

If I miss a class, can I make it up by attending another class or by making it up next semester? Students may not make up absences by attending classes other than their own or by attending the same class the following semester. 

Are classes handicapped-accessible? Because classes are held in multiple locations, we ask that you call us directly so we can accommodate your needs. The Main Branch of the Montclair Public Library is wheel chair accessible. The Bellevue Avenue Branch of the Montclair Public Library is NOT handicapped-accessible at this time but plans are underway to change this.
