NEW! Friends of CMLC is a new group formed by community members to advocate for and assist CMLC. There are many ways to help – big and small. Every little bit counts. Click here to read more.

CMLC is a community-based learning center where individuals and families of all cultures come together to share, mentor, and understand their different cultures, to access resources, and to build a cohesive community in a safe, welcoming environment.

Resources and programming are free. No appointment is necessary during the open hours, Monday-Friday 10am-5pm.
