Living in Montgomery County provides many services for seniors, among which are those provided the county public libraries. Julie Dina at the Center for Lifelong Learning program will discuss just what these services are Monday, September 23rd at 2:00 PM in Clubhouse 1 Baltimore Room. The program is free but residents are asked to register with the E&R office to assure adequate seating.

Our presenter Julie Dina started working with the Montgomery County Public Library as a part-time Circulation staff in 1997, while she was still attending college in the University of the District of Columbia. When Julie graduated and received a B.A. Degree in Mass Media and Communications, she left the library system to work full-time with the United States Senate in their Education and Training Department with the Sargent At Arms. 

 Upon realizing that she loved and missed working at the library, she returned to work with the Information staff as a part-time Library Associate. By then she had  completed her degree at the Library Associate Training Institute (LATI). She recently accepted a full-time position as an Outreach Library Associate so that she can continue to spread the good news on resources and services provided by MCPL.

Her most recent senior presentation and probably most requested subjects has been where attendees want to know more about the library services such as Technology classes, Large Print books, Book Discussions, Senior SmartTrip farecards and specific databases - Kanopy, Gale Courses and e-Magazines. 

Her presentation will elaborate on new resources for seniors available at Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL), from learning about health and consumer information, researching guides to trusted information about transportation, legal issues, employment, nursing homes and many other subjects, to movie streaming  utilizing Kanopy, accessing  digital magazines, audio books,  a variety of genres of music, craft tutorials, finding events and programs at MCPL, access to Gale courses &,  all FREE with your library card. Do not miss this wonderful learning opportunity.
