Aging Well

Learn something new with Lynda
In addition to our computer training classroom, the library now offers thousands of free online classes through Lynda.com. Work at your own pace to learn about photography, how to make a spreadsheet, how to use YouTube -- and much more.
Put your unique skills to work at your library. The Jefferson County Public Library and the Library Foundation rely on dedicated volunteers to help deliver library services and programs to county residents. Sign up individually or invite a friend or two to join you for a fulfilling experience.
In anticipation of the rapid growth of the 60+ population – the Baby Boomer “silver tsunami” - Jefferson County formed the Aging Well Project. This effort addresses the entire spectrum of concerns that older adults and their caregivers face: health, housing, transportation, legal, adequate food, and more.
Residents of Jefferson County who are unable to visit a library due to a permanent disability, or who are recovering from an injury for more than three months, may register for free home delivery of library books, movies and music. Friendly volunteers help you choose reading materials and bring them to your door with a smile.
