Seniors’ Month at HHPL

Posted On Thursday June 10, 2021

It’s seniors’ month in Canada, and this year’s theme is “Stay safe, active and connected.”

Every June we celebrate and recognize older adults, honouring all the contributions they’ve made in our communities and how they can stay independent and socially connected.

Here in Halton Hills, your local library is offering these great resources in celebration of this special month.

#SeniorsSafety
Drop by the Acton or Georgetown Branch to pick up a #SeniorsSafety Resource Kit. Each kit is packed with information from the Halton Age Friendly Network, Halton Regional Police Services, Halton Community Services Directory, Hillsview Active Living Centre, and Halton Hills Public Library. 

The Safety for Seniors Lecture with Halton Regional Police Services will be available for viewing on our YouTube channel.

Search Seniors Safety in our online catalogue to learn more about frauds and scams.
