It’s no news that the 50+ population is growing, nor is it news that baby-boomers are aging differently than the generations that preceded them. Their – your – expectations for the future may be more ambitious and definitely more exciting.

Still, there is a great deal to consider. If you are thinking about preparing for a new career, retirement, continuing education, managing your finances, travel, greater involvement in your community, spending more time with your grandchildren, or a host of other subjects, we have resources to ease your concerns and stimulate your mind.

As of Friday, March 13, 2020, the New Haven Free Public Library closed to the public indefinitely.  If you need library card assistance please call (203) 946-8130 x101 or email refdesk@nhfpl.org.
