If you’re over age 50 and wondering when you might get access to your favorite Library services, fire up your computer to attend a special virtual Civic Coffee Hour with The Seattle Public Library’s Chief Librarian Marcellus Turner from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 20.

The program, which is part of a series by Age Friendly Seattle, features Turner in conversation with Nancy Slote, older adults program manager at the Library. Turner and Slote will share information about the Library's Road to Reopening plan, including what services are currently available (virtually, or otherwise), what services are in the works and what the Library has been up to while buildings have been closed. There will also be a Q&A.


Age Friendly Seattle’s Virtual Civic Coffee Hour is held the third Thursday of every month from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. To join the Aug. 20 event, go to bit.ly/AgeFriendlyLive. You can also join by phone at 206-686-8357 (conference ID: 224 689 164). Closed captioning provided in Arabic, Chinese, English, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
