CALUMET CITY | The Calumet City Public Library, 660 Manistee Ave., brings in the winter season featuring two new senior programs.
The library is offering Feature Film Fridays Book & Movie Discussion and the Senior Legal Toolkit. From leisurely Friday afternoon movies to legal information, the Calumet City Public Library is making an effort to increase senior programming.
"In 2014, our goal is to present programs that serve the needs of our seniors," said Keisha Hester, head of Adult Services. "Our seniors play a valuable role in our library community, so we want to make sure that we develop programs that meet their information and recreational needs."
Feature Film Fridays is a new book discussion group offered to those who are interested in spending the first Friday afternoon of every month discussing a popular book and watching its film adaptation.
During the event, seniors will discuss the book for the first 30 minutes and then watch the film's adaptation. The first event is 1 p.m. Friday. The book discussion will be Philip Roth's "The Human Stain." Seniors can visit the Calumet City Public Library and pick up a copy and be prepared to discuss and watch the film's adaptation.
After attending the Feature Film Fridays' book discussion for the month of February, seniors can also mark their calendars for the Senior Legal Toolkit at 2 p.m. Feb. 19. This event gives seniors an opportunity to get expert legal information on wills, powers of attorney, and the probate process from attorney Tinita McDonald.
To register for the Feature Film Fridays Book Discussion and the Senior Legal Toolkit seminar, seniors can contact the Adult Services Department of the Calumet City Public Library at (708) 862-6220, ext 2.
