ten years ago, senior services were viewed primarily in terms of large print books and home delivery. "It was more thinking about the disabilities that come with being a senior citizen," says Elise MacLennan, assistant direc- tor of library services. "We still think of those things, but it's not the main focus." Indeed, MacLennan says she was hesitant to characterize activities as being for seniors. "We have to move away from labeling things as a service for seniors because people don't want to think of themselves as seniors," MacLennan says. "[They are] interested in the same things you and I are," be they concerts, lectures, or computer classes. Thieme advises people not to get worked up about labels. Instead, she says, "look at all you can do in your older years."
