Savvy Seniors: May is Older Americans Month

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into law in July 1965. Since that time, the Act has provided a nationwide aging services network and funding that helps older adults live with dignity in the communities of their choice for as long as possible.  Canton Public Library offers a variety of services to residents over the age of  62 such as  Books by Mail,  a Large Print Collection, large screen computer monitors with user friendly keyboards and mouses, Low Vision Magnifiers, and an Optelic Reader. The Canton Seniors Book Discussion group meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from 2:00-3:00pm.
