Cashiers’ Library Senior Services
by Luke Osteen
A workshop on Eldercare, set for Saturday, September 21, is just one of the services afforded to seniors at Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library.
Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library is hosting a seminar on Personal Care Services for the Elderly provided by Companion Healthcare at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, September 21.
Everyone is invited to attend this free program, which will be held in the library’s Meeting Room. There will be a question and answer session and free giveaways.
This eldercare program is just one facet of the library’s commitment to seniors in the community.
Recognizing that isolation can be a problem for seniors living alone, Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library offers educational and social events throughout the year of particular interest to adults.
Free movies are screened every Thursday at 3:45 P.M. (which means the movies end while it’s still light outside, for audience members who may have difficulty driving at night).
The library’s luxurious Reading Room is an invitation to conversation and lively discussions. In fact, ACCCL is something of a clearinghouse for local lore and juicy gossip throughout the year (especially in the quiet winter months).
The library maintains a suite of desktop computers that can help seniors conduct business and stay in touch with loved ones who may be far away, and a staff that can help patrons make those connections. There’s also a 24-hour wireless signal, which is vital for those who may not have broadband services at their home.
And finally, the library staff can provide free one-on-one help to those who are having issues with their laptops or phones (and who may not have ready access to a 12-year-old).
To learn more about the services offered to all of the Cashiers Library’s patrons, stop in at 249 Frank Allen Road or call (828) 743-0215.
