A Dozen Things You Can Do At Your NJ Library Besides Read

1. Get in a workout

Take an exercise class, from aerobics to Zumba and much more, at your local public library. Shelving books only burns so many calories.

2. Play a game

Children and families can enjoy casual game play at their local library  while meeting others in the community.

3. Keep the kids busy

Health insurance questions? Libraries offer resources

This fall, if you have questions about the health insurance options are available to you and your family, consider the resources at your local public library. Libraries and librarians across New Jersey will have access to information about the Medicare and Affordable Care Act Marketplace programs, may be hosting educational programs and one-on-one enrollment sessions, and can connect you with organizations that can provide additional assistance.

Senior Spaces at Old Bridge Public Library

Welcome to Senior Spaces!

Welcome to the Old Bridge Public Library’s “Senior Spaces” Project—our Library’s place for baby boomers, older adults and their families.  Our concept grew out of the need to develop a “transition center” which was identified as part of our Strategic Planning Process.  This “transition center” was to develop programs and services for recent active retirees that were interested in meaningful volunteer opportunities and those looking for second careers.  As we moved from concept to development we realized that we could do more to not only serve the “baby boomers” and go beyong this “transition center” but also to enhance and expand our already developing services to older adults.  Thus “Senior Spaces” was born; the first library in New Jersey to develop such a project.

We invite you to visit the Old Bridge Public Library when you are in the New Jersey area for a tour; explore this website for more information about the project; at www.oldbridgelibrary.org for current services and programs; and finally at  seniorspaces.blogspot.com for additional information.
