After a long gestation period, LLI will soon be unveiling our new website with a new Internet address. When we do, the current website, which has served us so well for many years, will be turned off, and you will be redirected to the new site. We expect this to happen by January 1, 2019. The new website will provide you with all the information from the current website, including upcoming events, and in addition, will add features like on-line membership renewal, on-line membership directory, and beginning with the Summer 2019 session, on-line class registration.
Stay tuned for implementation announcements and instructions. In the meantime, our existing LLI website will continue to be your go-to source for LLI information, to include the next 8 days and the Spring 2019 Class Catalog. If you have questions, contact us at our administrative email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.

In 1999 LLI established a Student Scholarship Program at the Northern Virginia Community College-Annandale Campus to give much needed financial help to outstanding students. This is in appreciation and recognition of the support provided by the college to LLI, as well as an opportunity to support a most worthy cause.
Aging in Place is for those members who want to live in their home for as long as possible. The web site contains Service Providers by category of service for easy access to multiple providers. Members may find the help they need to make living safer and more comfortable as the need arises. For members still considering the alternative options to Aging in Place, various options are also presented, such as moving to a “Village”, Senior Living Facility, Long Term Care Facilities and Nursing Homes.
LLI Aging in Place provides names and contacts for services and does not make recommendations. It is the member’s responsibility to contact the service provider and arrange for the service.
To access these services providers click on the title “Aging in Place Service Providers” above.

As a member of LLI you have a wonderful Northern Virginia Community College Library at your disposal. The library is located on the third floor of the Godwin Building. This is just up the ramp from the Richard J. Ernest Community and Cultural Center. To use the library you simply sign up for a Community Patron card by showing a picture ID. You then can charge out a limit of three books for three weeks and take them home. Also you can renew books online for an additional period. If you have LLI classes on the campus, this resource would be very convenient. Go to http://www.nvcc.edu/library/ for more information.
