The NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network is pleased to announce its three book selections in support of Healthy Aging.

Book Covers for Women Rowing North, Elderhood and The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 ¼ Years Old

 

Women Rowing North by Mary Pipher

Elderhood by Louise Aronson

The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 ¼ Years Old by Hendrik Groen

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, all baby boomers will be older than age 65 by 2030. This will expand the size of the older population so that 1 in every 5 persons will be a senior. How can you successfully navigate the advancing years? Practice healthy aging:

  • Be physically active
  • Make smart food choices
  • Get regular health screenings
  • Participate in activities you enjoy

During September – or any month – help get the conversation started in support of healthy aging. Choose one of the three NNLM Reading club books, download the discussion guide, and share health information and programming … or apply for a free NNLM Reading Club Book Kit!

Thoughts on "Explore Healthy Aging with the NNLM Reading Club"

We offer health outreach and dialog extension programming for 65+ community members. Book clubs have been valuable tools for sharing impactful health information, especially in outlying rural areas. Our vision includes empowering people through learning opportunities. Older patrons appreciate larger print, as do those with macular degeneration and other health problems impacting vision.
