It’s Seniors Month!

June is Senior’s Month, a time to recognize and honour older adults. 2022 marks the 38th Seniors’ Month where seniors are celebrated as important parts of our communities in Ontario as well as in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island and Nunavut.

While all branches of the Markham Public Library are open, we encourage older adults to continue to take advantage of helpful resources such as :

Our MPL web page devoted to resources, programs and information relevant to older adults.

Ask MPL – We have an online chat service at Markham Public Library as well! Feel free to connect with us regarding any questions you may have, and library staff members will be more than happy to help you – all from the safety and comfort of your home.

Online Resources –  There are lots of great online resources that can be  access from home. You can check out eBooksmagazines and newspapers, and even take online courses, to name a few. The best part? We know how diverse the Markham community is, so many of our resources are offered in many languages other than English!
