An Age Friendly Library is a library that understands and responds to the needs of people of all ages and makes a special effort to identify and attend to the specific needs of older adults.
We aim to be an Age Friendly Library Service and have assigned an Age Friendly champion in each of our libraries to achieve this. We are committed to working with Age Friendly Ireland and Age Friendly Tipperary towards making and keeping our library buildings, services and programming age friendly.
Age Friendly Tipperary aims to be more inclusive of older people by addressing their expressed concerns and interests under the eight pillars of the World Health Organization’s global age friendly programme.
The programme has a strong focus on creating walkable, attractive and accessible communities and age-friendly spaces. By introducing actions to address participation and inequality it is intended that people of all ages will be supported to enjoy healthier, more active and connected lives.
Tipperary Age Friendly Older Peoples Council have developed a project to capture stories and tales of the past, listening to the voices of older people across County Tipperary.
