Check out books in your own retirement community

Lillith is a friendly and welcoming volunteer for the library-in-residence program at Colonel Belcher Care Centre. As a resident, Lillith has been volunteering with library programs in the building for the last decade.

Colonel Belcher Care Center is one of four residences that the library brings a collection of materials to for the residents to select from and check out as part of our senior outreach programs. Colonel Belcher has an average of 35-40 residents each month who eagerly await the unveiling of the new library materials that have arrived. Lillith assists the staff in getting the materials out on the tables and set up and encouraging residents to enjoy the experience, even those who are sight impaired.

Lilith pays special attention to those who have physical ailments that might prevent them from perusing the library collection at length and assists them in seeking out materials that they like and bringing them to the residents who are unable to fully navigate the room. Often sight impaired residents ask for her assistance in reading the back covers of audio books so that they can make sure they’ve not heard the book previously.

Lillith is a constant activist for library programs and encouraging residents to keep reading or listening to audio books to keep their minds active.

Thank you Lilith!
