Seniors Outreach Series

This pandemic has been difficult for so many people. 

You may be feeling lonely, vulnerable, or isolated. It's hard to realize that. It may be even harder to say it out loud: "I feel lonely..."  If you're a senior or an older adult (or you know someone who is), Milton Public Library hears you, and we're here for you. We want you to feel noticed, included, and cared for.

Please consider this an open invitation: we would LOVE to see you at any of the following Seniors Outreach Series. Please join us!
