Did you know that the library will deliver books and tapes right to your door? All you need is a library card. Browse through books online, and have them sent directly to you. If you are losing your eyesight, the library also has a wide selection of books on tape. Search here.

Create a Family History to share with others - Do you know where your great-great-grandparents were born or how they came to this country? Geneology is one of the hottest hobbies today and there  is a wealth of resources available online and at the library.  Websites such as Ancestry.com, EllisIsland.org and genhomepage.com are a great place to start.

Special Interest:

The Seniors Coalition - Originally founded as a public advocacy group fighting to repeal the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act. The Seniors Coalition has expanded its advocacy to include any issue that concerns America's senior citizens. Today the Coalition is one of the largest grassroots advocacy organizations in Washington, D.C.

For Assistance:

Sometimes we get to a time in life where it is necessary to hire a little
help with our daily activities. Care.com and Visiting Angels are great place to look for help locally, and ElderHelpers is also a wonderful free service. And if it is necessary to have even more assistance and it is becoming difficult to live alone, there are many reputable assisted living facilities and nursing homes located in Winter Garden.
