Best Apps for Seniors 

Some people never venture beyond the handful of apps that came preinstalled on their Apple, Android, or Windows device. Other people load their devices to the brim with apps they rarely if ever use. There are a handful of apps, though, that will keep you learning, growing, and sharing throughout your life. Some read books to you, others serve up daily crossword puzzles, and still others help make sure you don’t forget about any medications! Join the discussion 3-4 p.m. Friday, May 24, 2024, at the Southwest Branch Library, as one of the adult librarians presents overviews of those apps and gives you a chance to share your suggestions with the class on apps you can't live without!
