Seniors in good books with charitable Elks

The Stettler Elks have pitched in to help seniors’ programs at the Stettler Public Library.

The Stettler Elks have pitched in to help seniors’ programs at the Stettler Public Library.

Phil Holton, representing the Elks Lodge No. 92 organization, presented Stettler librarian Mary Zazelenchuk with a $1,000 cheque last Tuesday.

Holton said the donation was designated for seniors’ programming to especially support those housebound seniors having difficulty accessing the library.

Outreach librarian Brandi Roper has regularly scheduled visits each week to the Stettler seniors’ lodges, where she brings a selection of books to the residents and picks up the books they have read.

Other seniors in Stettler who can’t access the library can apply to the library for a similar service.

Roper said she has become acquainted with her clients’ preferences for authors or type of books.

She said the library can also mail books to library members in outlying areas.

The library also has books for the hearing and visually impaired.
