In both fall and winter terms, members can take four- or six-week courses or two-plus classes that consist of two in-person classes and an optional off-site visit to a related place. 

A recent addition is “Learning on the Move” which provides educational field trips to places in and around Southern Arizona.  Both programs require membership and a small class fee.

Samplers are one-hour presentations on a wide variety of topics.  The widely popular Samplers are held on Thursdays at 2 p.m. in Catalina Vista during both fall and winter sessions during the months of  October, November, February and March.  Presenters, often professors from the University of Arizona, are experts in their fields.  There is no fee to attend and all SCOV residents are welcome.  

The ILR supports the Library by providing funds to assist in adding to the Library’s collections and bringing authors to speak at SCOV.

The ILR has also partnered with the SCOV Library to offer free movies chosen and introduced by ILR members who then lead subsequent discussions. 

In the past, ILR was a major contributor to the Library renovation.
