Seniors blowing bubbles

With everything from how to become tech savvy to author talks on the latest best seller, Council libraries are the place to be during Seniors Week from August 15 to 23.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said Council would acknowledge the vital role seniors played across our region by holding a week-long celebration of activities and events.

“Seniors Week is an opportunity for people of all ages to take a moment to recognise the valuable contribution seniors make to the Sunshine Coast,” Cr McKay said.

“In recognition of this important week, our libraries will be holding a range of free events incorporating The Council of Ageing theme ‘It’s on for young and old’ as well as highlighting resources and programs aimed at members aged 50+.

“There will be morning teas, tech tutorials, author talks and Wii Play sessions for seniors and more.

“Seniors can stay better connected with their families and friends across the world by becoming tech savvy and learning how to use technology such as an iPad or how to download eBooks.

“So during Seniors Week I urge everyone to come along to a library activity and celebrate with our valued older residents and visitors that have made a difference to our lives.”
