With collaborative support and generous funding from the Cupertino Library Foundation, the Cupertino Library has created a Senior Resource Collection to better serve Cupertino's older adult population. Based on the Age Friendly Cupertino Task Force August 2019 report, older adults are the fastest growing age group in the community and will reach well over 10,000 (17.5%) by 2025.
The Cupertino Library is thrilled to create this special collection of books and community resource information that reflect the needs and common concerns our seniors face everyday, like making important health and long-term care decisions, estate planning and financial security, mental wellness and isolation, positive aging and living well, physical and cognitive fitness and more. We hope the collection will inspire our seniors to live their best lives after 55, as well as encourage them to reach out and ask for help when they need it.
The Cupertino Library Foundation also works with the Cupertino Senior Center and other agencies to provide free education programs for seniors at the Cupertino Library. The Senior Resource Center is located near the Teen Zone on the second floor of the library.
