Cohoes Senior Center Transport to the Library and Senior book club!

New Program for Seniors

A new joint program between the Cohoes Public Library and the Cohoes Senior Center will be starting in August. Seniors are an important part of our city, and starting August 5, seniors will have an opportunity to sign up for a van ride to the library to peruse the books, use the computers, participate in a knitting/crocheting group, or participate in a book club designed for them. Help will be given with signing up for a library card or using the computers. The library is a great source of not just traditional books, but eBooks, audio books, DVDs and magazines. The book club will be the 3rd Wednesday of the month with the first selection being “The Crazyladies of Pearl Street” by Trevanian. Crazyladies is a semiautobiographical novel that takes place in Albany and is sure to bring back fond memories. Books will be available in advance at the Library. The van ride is free and participants are asked to sign up at the Senior Center by 1 pm. The van will leave the center around 1:15 pm and return about 2:45 pm. Questions about the van may be directed to the Center at 235-2420 while questions about the Library may be directed to 235-2570.
