North Liberty celebrates Older Americans Month

This May is Older Americans Month and, in celebration, the City of North Liberty is hosting new and existing nutritional, social and educational programs for local seniors the entire month! The theme is “Engage at Every Age,” so the goal is to encourage seniors to try new things and to learn ways to give back to the community via volunteering.

We’re “committed to helping all individuals live longer, healthier lives in North Liberty for as long as possible,” said Mayor Terry Donahue, while proclaiming the month in celebration. “It is priority to the Mayor and City Council that all North Liberty socialization activities, recreation, facilities, sidewalks and park space are made accessible to people of all abilities, so residents of any age – and families as a whole – can enjoy public events and amenities together.”

During May, older residents are invited to join us for special senior-focused activities and engagement most week days in May.

Each Monday (except May 28 when the library is closed), stop by the North Liberty Community Library between 10 and 11 a.m. for coffee and socializing; each Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. will offer a Lunch Bunch group at local restaurants; Wednesdays have regular activities and popcorn from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in the North Liberty Community Library, and every Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. is Senior Dining with an activity or presentation. On Sunday, May 20, the North Liberty Community Library will host a volunteer fair, and host area non-profit organizations who are seeking new volunteers. The fair is open to all ages.
