Don’t Miss Your Chance to Attend our Senior Information Fair

On January 30, 2013 the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library will host its second annual Senior Information Fair. This free event will be held in the library’s Marvin Auditorium from 10:00 am–1:00 pm and will highlight a variety of local agencies and businesses that cater to the needs of aging populations.

Stop by each exhibitor’s booth to find out what services and products they have to offer. Numerous topics will be covered including finance, Medicare, veteran’s benefits, volunteer opportunities, in-home medical care, hospice services, assistive devices, health & nutrition, continuing education, household cleaning & errands assistance, housing options, and transportation services. Remember to visit The Edge from 10:30 am–11:30 am for your chance to explore the benefits ebooks have to offer to older adults and then again from 11:45 am–12:45 pm to learn exactly what services the library’s Red Carpet department can provide for you.

  1. What I need is some training on my smart phone. I don’t seem to get the hang of it. I’ve talked to others with the same complaint.

  2. The library offers free classes for people who have questions about their ereaders and smart phones too. The next sessions, called Computer & Gadget Help, is January 29th from 3:30 – 5:00 pm and January 30th from 11:00 – 12:30 pm. Call 785-580-4606 or email for more information.
