Seattle Public Library offers virtual arts programs for older adults in December

SEATTLE (November 20, 2020) - This winter, The Seattle Public Library and Silver Kite Community Arts have partnered to offering online intergenerational workshops, talks, social hours, and performances for the community. These opportunities provide stimulating and creative engagement opportunities, as well as social connection.

"Older adults are facing unprecedented challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic," said Nancy Slote. "We are working with community partners to offer virtual programs to help older adults navigate important decisions with physical and mental health, as well as fun programs that help them connect and learn."
