About SeniorsConnect

The Internet is not just a passing fad and it’s not just for the young!
It’s a great way to pursue information and communicate with your
family, friends and neighbors. You will find information, both local
and global, about health, living, money, recreation and more. One goal
of North Coast SeniorsConnect is to promote computer use and training
opportunities for the growing number of older persons accessing the
Internet. This web site was developed with this in mind.
SeniorsConnect.org is an excellent first stop on the information super
highway.

Please keep in mind at all times that staff at the Cleveland Public
Library are dedicated to helping you access information and connect to
the tools and services that can enrich your lives.
