Seniors' Discovery Fair in Scarborough!

September 26, 2013 | John P. | Comments (0)

This Thursday, September 26, come join us for our Seniors' Discovery Fair!

This free event is a great chance to learn more about what services are offered specifically for older adults, right here in Scarborough. Come talk to representatives from agencies like Toronto Public Health and The Canadian Hearing Society, just to name two. There will be refreshments and the chance to win great prizes, so come by and find out what is available in your community.

Older adults are a huge part of Toronto, and it's a group that is expected to grow dramatically in the next ten years. Whether you're a senior yourself, are caring for aging parents or grandparents, or work with older adults, it's always a good idea to know what services are available. This includes health care,
housing, and social events too.

In addition to fairs like this, there are many aspects of senior living:
Toronto has its own Seniors' Forum, comprised of active seniors from around the city (and they recruit volunteers -- a great idea for those interested!) 

Don't forget to check out what's new at the library itself too: We will have a table set up where we can introduce you to upcoming library programs and services. For example, you can check out how to access Zinio, a new online magazine database that allows you access to current magazine issues online, free of charge with an active library card. Zinio is a great service for users of all ages, but can be particularly helpful for seniors who would like to enjoy popular magazine titles at home, or be able to do specific things like enlarge print and zoom in for reading ease. 


The Seniors' Discovery Fair at the Cedarbrae Branch will run from 2 to 4:30 PM on Thursday September 26th in our Program Room, on the first floor. Everyone is welcome, so we hope to see you
