Programs for Older People

We run programs for people aged 55 years and over to help you stay active and healthy, learn new skills, and meet new people.

Regular programs

Tech Help

If you want to learn to use your technology better, then book a one-on-one tech help session. Library staff will assist you with learning about your devices, and can help you do a range of tasks. Whether you want to set up an email account, learn to borrow an eBook, or just browse the internet safely, we offer sessions to help.

We offer sessions at both Warrawong Library and Wollongong Library.

Old Boys Social Club

Wollongong City Council has started an initiative to bring together older men in the community. Whether it's watching a film together or taking apart bicycles, there are a range of programs being organised to get you out of the house and socialising.

If you need transport assistance to make it to an event, contact My Aged Care to check if you are eligible and ask to be referred to Wollongong Council Community Transport.

For more information, visit their website.

Knit, Stitch, Yarn

For all those crafty and creative types, our libraries offer a range of sewing, knitting, and crochet social programs for you to get involved with. Instead of working on your projects at home alone, come along to one of our sessions and work alongside others who share the same passion!

Whether you want to share tips and tricks, or just have a cuppa and keep your hands busy, we've got craft programs happening at most of our libraries. Explore our events calendar to see where your nearest one is happening.
