Seniors Week week is an opportunity to focus on programming and services for seniors provided by public libraries. The goals are to increase seniors’ knowledge of public libraries, and to increase seniors’ usage of the public library system and services. Last year was the first year of this celebration.
There are 120 programs happening in Nova Scotia during this week. Click this link for information on other regional programming. Branches of the Annapolis Valley Regional Library are offering 23 programs. On October 20 the Port Williams branch is offering an estate planning workshop. Come and learn about GPS in Kingston, or healthy eating tips for life in Middleton on October 21. The Windsor branch will have games and puzzles available every day during seniors’ week and a live performance by Dewey and the Decimals on October 23. The Hantsport branch will host an informational session with a local physiotherapist, and Kingston will host an open house of services available for seniors in the community. Some branches will be hosting RCMP senior safety workshops. Click here to view our events for this week, and to register for special programs.
