From Movies to Meals: Senior Services and Spaces at Your Local Library

Class Details

Libraries often are the de facto senior centers of our growing - and aging - communities. The Marion Public Library embraces this role through program design, community feedback, and strategic partnerships. In addition to "traditional" library programming, the library works to meet the nutritional and social needs of seniors through twice-weekly congregate meals as well as a monthly mobile food pantry visit.

Dawn Cline is the Outreach Services Coordinator at the Marion Public Library. A Marion native, her work includes serving as the library liaison to multiple community groups. Cline was instrumental in bringing senior meals to the Marion Library Spring 2018.

Madeline Jarvis is the Adult and Information Services Coordinator at the Marion Public Library. Her work includes overseeing tween, teen, and adult programming; collection development; and wearing many hats.
