Our "senior spaces" project is now off and running. At our opening on June 8th, the New Jersey State Library awarded us a grant of $10,000 to continue to develop the space and move to Phase III--design and construction of our "center for creative learning."

Because we have had so many requests about the project, below you can find links to news stories and photos about "senior spaces."

If you have any additional questions, please e-mail me at:

We will continue to add to the blog at: over the summer.

Here are the links:

Let us know what you think about the project. Our next phase will also include the development of programming activities in conjunction with our newly formed "Senior Spaces Advisory Board."

Chat with you soon,
