Seniors

We offer a number of services and programs for Seniors. Our Senior Outreach librarian works with community organizations to bring you quality programs. We have partnered with Parsippany LIVE on many of these programs including our Senior Yoga.

Home Bound Delivery: Our home bound delivery service picks up and delivers materials to any resident who is temporarily or permanently home bound or without access to public/private transportation.

For the Hearing Impaired: Our audio-visual collection contains many closed captioned DVD’s for education and instruction.

For the Vision Impaired: We offer a wide selection of large print materials, including The Reader’s Digest. Two computer work stations are equipped with software to aid you in your computer needs.

The library offers health and self improvement programs to our senior population. Many computer classes are offered in our technology lab for the adult learner and all citizens, including seniors, are invited to take advantage of these classes to improve their computer skills. The library networks with the Parsippany Community center and actively participates in programs held at that location.

If you have any questions regarding Home Bound Deliveries, please email Stephanie Kip at stephanie.kip@parsippanylibrary.org.
