Letter Submission

Year-Round Library offers plenty to keep seniors connected & engaged

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

We all know that seniors can often live in isolation — this is especially true in the winter months. Happily, the Gilmanton Year-Round Library recognizes this and ensures that the library has plenty to keep senior citizens connected and engaged. In today's world it is helpful to seniors to have access to family and friends who may live a distance away. The library has Internet access so people can stay connected. The library also offers ancestry.com, a popular program for many adults. The librarian is available to offer assistance to those who may need to learn some aspects of computers.
On the fourth Monday of each month, a movie is shown at 1 p.m. It is a great opportunity to enjoy a new movie or an old classic with neighbors and friends right here in town. A weekly craft group meets on Tuesday afternoons. Bring your most recent project to work on and share ideas with other crafters. Other programs are held throughout the year — just call the Library at 364-2400, go to the website (www.gyrla.org) or receive the monthly e-newsletter to keep informed of upcoming events.
Stop by the Library to read the newspaper, check out a new book or movie, or chat with neighbors. It is the library's goal to offer programming and services to meet the needs of all our community members. If there is a program or activity you would like to have available, contact the Library — new ideas are always welcome.
