Public Libraries Offer Aging Adults More Than Ever Before!
People Over 50 Can Truly Enjoy the Library!
Public libraries offer adult programs that go far beyond book clubs!
Tech Help for Adults
Most libraries offer tech help for Kindles or tablets. The Avon Lake Public Library offers Tuesdays with Technology, but adults can also make one-on-one appointments with a librarian.
Roku® streaming players that connect your TV to the Internet can be checked out from the library, creating a convenient, cost-effective way to watch TV. And there’s so much more!

One Library Card Does It All
A library card offers access to online resources and interlibrary loaning, making everything available close to home, or even at home.
Library cards grant free access to apps on phones or tablets so patrons can borrow ebooks, audiobooks, movies, music and TV shows. AND, librarians will teach how to use them.
