Lending Library

Aging, living with a disability, and providing care are complicated. Frequently, specific issues arise that bring up questions and the desire to learn more. Knowing where to turn for dependable information can be difficult.

The Lending Library has items on a variety of topics of interest to seniors, individuals with disabilities, and caregivers, including more than 300 books, DVDs and information sheets available to check out. Free brochures, booklets and information sheets are also available. Topics include Aging, Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia, Caregiving, Driving, Financial Issues, Grandparenting, Loss & Bereavement, Medical Issues, Mental Health, Nutrition, Retirement, Spirituality and Wellness.
