Senior Citizen Lending Library For Your Reading Pleasure

We have a fully operating lending library for members. The books are organized and arranged by a color coding system according to the following categories:

Reference Books, Novels, Mysteries & Suspense, Biographies, Non-Fiction, Health and Cookbooks as well as a collection of Large Prints Books.

Come in and select a book or two and sign them out on the sheet provided. When you have finished reading your selections just return them to our library, cross the entry off and write in the date returned. Place the returned book on the returned shelf and we’ll re-shelf it for you.

We also have a collection of VHS tapes on various Civil War battles and themes that have been loaned to the library for the enjoyment of Civil War buffs. Tapes may be viewed on the libraries large screen TV in the library room or borrowed for up to 2 weeks. The same procedure for borrowing books applies to short term borrowing of the Civil War Tapes.

The library is organized and maintained by volunteers. We acknowledge the work of Doris Schofield who has entered the collection into a database, Barbara Graham who classified the collection into coded categories and Bobbie Babbitt for the design of the Data Base and Coding System.

Rosie’s “Reaching Out Program”

Volunteers needed

Monday, Tuesday & Fridays 10:00am to noon

Living alone can be tough for many of our seniors especially the ones that don’t have family living nearby or can’t get out due to limited driving abilities, illness, or physical ailments, that is why we’re looking for volunteers needed to make phone calls to our seniors just to let them know we care and are thinking about them, and most of all, to ask how they are doing and if there is anything we can do.

Interested in making a difference? Call Rosie at 609-861-3137.

Special Needs Registry

If you, a friend or a loved one is disabled, handicapped, a senior citizen or otherwise has special needs (either temporary or permanent), you are eligible for the Special Needs Registry. THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS SERVICE.

Enrollment in this program makes our Emergency Management Coordinator aware of all residents with special needs who may need additional assistance to assure their safety in the event of case of a hurricane or unforeseen disaster in the area. A copy of this list will be kept on file in Township Hall, Emergency Management Office and the Dennis Township Senior Center. Again, this is a FREE service and might well save your life or the life of someone you love.
