Green River College in Covington

Green River College will offer a variety of free workshops and lectures, as well as a for-credit course, to serve the needs of the Covington community and surrounding SE King County area.

The workshops and lectures will take place at the Covington Library (27100 164th Ave SE, Covington, WA 98042), and are free and open to the public. Workshops are drop-in only; a library membership is not needed to attend.

“This program is a tool and an asset for our community and those around our community. We have a lot of people that started school and then for whatever life reason had to stop... We hope this is an opportunity to go back to school and finish their education.” - Covington City Manager Regan Bolli
