Seniors enjoy community time at East Melbourne Library
The City of Melbourne has six branches of Libraries each with up-to-date resources, books, newspapers and magazines to browse, eBooks and eAudio, learning resources, digital facilities; you name it, they have it. A 'library' is nothing like how used to be in days gone by. Most Libraries Australia-wide hold communal activities and workshops for adults and children on a regular basis and in school holidays.
Libraries have become more of a social meeting place for the community. They are also a wealth of combined literature and digital resource knowledge, all in one place.

On 16th October 2018, The East Melbourne Library situated at 122 George Street, Melbourne is hosting an afternoon of board games for seniors from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. This is an excellent opportunity for you to meet new people and if you live alone, this afternoon gives you the chance to play board games with other people. The game of Patience is great for a solo player, however, can become boring after a period of time.
Board Games of today have also come a long way from the days of Scrabble and Monopoly, although these games are still very popular. This is an afternoon where you can challenge your mind and skills with some of the new games the library has in-house. You are sure to be entertained and enjoy a few laughs as you accomplish new techniques.
For more information, you can ring 03 9658 9700. The event is free and requires no bookings. If you have the time and interested to learn, this is for you. All ages are welcome.
