Senior Citizen Programs

Tiffin-Seneca Public Library is proud of its history supporting senior citizens in the Seneca County community. With many so services available at no cost, senior citizens are able to utilize the Library without even stepping outside of their home.  

For information about any of these programs, email rinamaem@tiffinsenecalibrary.org or call the Library.


Senior Citizen Outreach

Programs are presented ten months of each year at area nursing homes and assisted living facilities and are geared toward themes of remembering the past. Presentations are designed to rekindle memories and encourage sharing about bygone days, as well as entertain and educate.

Seniors look forward to attending and appreciate this opportunity to share their thoughts, memories and stories. The outreach program is funded by a grant from the Allen Eiry Fund with additional support from the Library. 


Senior Citizen Collection

The Library makes regular delivery of materials to local nursing homes and retirement complexes. Each site receives at least eight different collections a year with the purpose of providing reading material for residents and enhancing the facilities' own library.

The rotating collections include 30 to 80 items and are composed of large print mysteries, westerns, romance, fiction and nonfiction, as well as media items such as audiobooks and DVDs, if desired.

 

Talking Book Program

Those who are unable to use standard print material because of visual or physical disabilities might be eligible for Talking Books. This free program of the United States Library of Congress provides audio materials and the machines to play them to those who qualify.

Users must complete an application for this special service and a certification of disability must be completed. The Library is a cooperating library with the State Library of Ohio and applications are available in the Extension Department.
