‘Websites for Seniors’ subject of January Seniors Count-Nashua workshop
NASHUA – The Internet is a valuable resource for all ages, including seniors in search of information to help them live a more informed and fulfilling life as they age. The challenge is where to look for reliable, up-to-date information on the World Wide Web.
Sophie Smith, reference librarian for the Nashua Public Library, will offer insight into the wide variety of information available on the web at the January Seniors Count-Nashua workshop. Participants will see where to access their Social Security account, find tax forms, and get health information. If time permits, locations for sites that help plan a trip, share photos with families and friends and find articles from newspapers and magazines will also be covered.
The workshop will be presented classroom style as a Power Point presentation; participants will not have access to individual computers.
The free workshop is scheduled for Monday, January 14. It begins at 1:00pm. The Senior Activity Center is located at 70 Temple St., Nashua.
Advance registration for the workshop is requested. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator for Southern New Hampshire Services at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
