Senior Virtual Activities Kits

 

Take a journey without leaving where you are. Sight see, travel, all at your fingertips with your library card. Virtual Activity Kits serve educational and entertainment purposes for senior citizens.  Each themed virtual kit includes several activities from virtual exploration and tours, movies, audio and e-books and much much more to keep you entertained at home using our eResources and Digital Collection. With the virtual explosion on the rise  we have compiled links to activities, movies and more for use.

The Adult Services Department has compiled an array of Virtual Activity Kits with our senior patrons in mind! These fun and interactive kits include eBooks, streaming movies, music selections, at-home crafts and virtual tours to keep you entertained at home using our eResources and Digital Collection.

Keep your eyes open for many more to come! And if you want a new virtual activity made, please email us at asdept@mapld.org.
