The years after the children are grown and the job is done are years, for some, of finding a new life span where there is still health.  Most mature people are healthier than ever before and people in general are living longer, healthier lives.  Some, with time on their hands, are finding new careers, new businesses, time to travel, civic engagement, volunteering, raising grand children or some still must work to make ends meet.  Vibrant people living a life far from over are engaging in the growth of a new human dimension or life span.  What does this mean in your life?

These pages are devoted to you and there is hope they would inspire you.  If you have anything you want the library to think about adding that you would feel useful to others on this plus side of life, please speak up and contact Cindy at 626-5475 or
