Seniors Trivia Winners impress with local knowledge
The winning table at Friday's Seniors Week Trivia Afternoon (pictured above: Merle Lummis, Betty Wilson, Janette Giffin, Kerrel Moor, Carol Jamieson, Rosemary and Keith Curry (at the back) absent for the photo was Felicity Cosgrove) proved they were no slouches in the local knowledge department even gaining extra points for being able to sing the Song of Australia (don't tell anyone – but they used to sing it a school). Although all the teams struggled in Round 2 (thanks for the tough questions Peter!) everyone had a lot of fun. Questions like what time does Storytime start? How many roundabouts in Byng Street? What is the height of Mt Canobolas in metres or feet? Allowed most teams to catch up and it was a close contest. The afternoon tea of sandwiches and scones served al fresco provided a welcome break for the competitive teams. It made for a Happy Seniors Week!
Happy Seniors Week!
It's NSW Seniors Week and across our 7 branches we're celebrating the contribution that older people make to our community. The definition of a senior is “over 50” and this alone has had some of our staff reaching for the Grecian 2000!
The library supports the senior members of the community through the provision of tailored services. These include:
* Large print books,
* Audio books on tape, CD, MP3 and most recently as downloads
* Home Library Service, delivering library materials to clients who can't come to us
* The Library Bus, transporting elderly clients to the library (orange only).
We also offer specially designed programs such as the internet for seniors – we're told that our staff are not so intimidating as some “younger” trainers!
Seniors Week 2009 – Live Life 50 and Beyond
Enjoy your special week.
