There were guest speakers and demonstrations on:
- falls prevention
- keeping safe in the home
- chair exercise
- hand massage
There was also the opportunity to use laptops and tablets to find out how to access library and council information online, and to get to grips with downloading free e-books, e-audiobooks and e-magazines from the library.
Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to find out useful information,(including transport options in Westminster) and to try something new. The chance to chat over a bite to eat was welcome as it is not easy for Home Library Service members to get out and about. New friends were made, phone numbers exchanged and members left with lots of information and new opportunities!
“Thank you for a delightful day full of exciting information”
“ We learnt many useful tips about various areas where help is available…”
“ Lovely… good company… most helpful with email and using my tablet…”
“Please could we have more events like this – I feel 20 years younger being brought out to this sort of thing!”
The Home Library Service will hold its next Spring into Spring event at Pimlico Library on 21 April.
