SE­NIORS can use the Wan­garatta Li­brary for more than just bor­row­ing books next month.

A wide range of fun and ex­cit­ing events are on of­fer at the Wan­garatta Li­brary this Oc­to­ber as part of the Wan­garatta Se­niors Fes­ti­val.

Se­niors can re­fine their skills or learn new ones when they par­tic­i­pate in the Sit, Knit and Cro­chet ses­sion and the in­ter­net in­tro­duc­tory pro­gram, Get On­line.

The Clas­sics of Cin­ema and Colour­ing for Mind- ful­ness ses­sions will give par­tic­i­pants the chance to un­wind and en­joy a laid­back ac­tiv­ity ac­com­pa­nied by morn­ing or af­ter­noon tea.

Lo­cal ex­perts will be on hand to give se­niors tips and tricks about wick­ing bed gar­den­ing, and the ben­e­fits of us­ing it as a way to grow plants.

Staff will help se­niors learn how to take ad­van­tage of their smart de­vices when they down­load the Lu­mi­nos­ity, El­e­vate or Peak ap­pli­ca­tions for the Mind Ac­tive brain train­ing ses­sion, or Bolinda Bor­rowBox to borrow free eBooks and au­dio books from the li­brary.

Act­ing li­brary co­or­di­na­tor, Jasen Smith, said all ses­sions would be free to at­tend for se­niors.

“Se­niors Fes­ti­val is al­ways a fun time at the li­brary and this year is no dif­fer­ent, with ev­ery­thing from brain train­ing to a movie and cro­chet,” he said.
