We know how busy you are and we're here to help. The library offers numerous programs and services to the senior facilities within the Westerville City School District.
What We Offer
Below is a list of programs we currently offer.
Borrow a Librarian: Baffled by a technology problem? Whether you need help setting up your email, downloading books or taking pictures, get personalized hands-on assistance with a librarian without leaving home.
Caregiver Kits: Borrow one of these kits to spark memories and encourage interaction. Designed for those caring for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. (Reserve now.)
Games: Looking for a fun & informal program for your social butterflies? The library will happily plan games or activities for facility residents, from Pictionary to Jeopardy, spelling bees to trivia. You can count on us to bring games, equipment and a fun attitude.
Leaping Letters: At the beginning of each school year, this intergenerational pen-pal program pairs senior citizens in area facilities with an elementary school student in Westerville. Participants write letters to each other, building reading and writing skills as well as meaningful relationships together.
Remember When Storytimes: An interactive group program based on an ever-changing theme, storytimes will include not only a story read aloud by a librarian, but also music, pictures and props. These events allow participants to interact and share memories based on common experiences and topics.
