Celebrating seniors at the library

Enjoy the programs at your local library - particularly during seniors month.

Whether it be maximising your money on the road or taking deep dive into relationships, there are plenty of workshops happening across the region to recognise the valuable contribution of seniors in the community.

Sunshine Coast Libraries are hosting an exciting calendar of events and workshops for people of all ages to celebrate Queensland Seniors month (October 1-31).

Sunshine Coast Council Community Portfolio Councillor David Law said Queensland Seniors comprised many people including volunteers, those in the workforce, community leaders or carers, grandparents and advocates.

“Seniors Month provides opportunities to promote positive community attitudes towards older people and ageing, facilitate community participation and enhance community connections,” Cr Law said.

“There are many free community programs on offer including how to get started with family history, refreshing digital skills by creating images in Canva or navigating your way around Facebook Marketplace.

“Challenge your mind and have some fun at the trivia event, learn how to make a bee hotel for solitary bees or enjoy a free fun, hands-on workshop with relationship coach Lisa Jayne to create stronger, happier and healthier relationships with yourself and those around you.”

Registration for workshops and sessions by visiting Council’s Libraries website.
