A is for Aging

A is for Aging

Age-Friendly Sarasota is a countywide effort to promote active, engaged, and healthy living for people of all ages. With full support from the Board of County Commissioners, Sarasota County took the lead of this initiative in 2019. The Age-Friendly process is one of continuous quality improvement, and we look for new and creative ways to keep the lens focused on our aging population.

With that said, it’s a perfect time for Age-Friendly Sarasota and Sarasota County Libraries to come together to support “A is for Aging,” a collection of books that portray older adults and aging in a positive light for young readers.

The “A is for Aging” program includes titles for children under age five. It includes stories through the eyes of grandparents, neighbors, or famous late bloomers. During this Children’s Book Week (November 8-14, 2021), we hope you use this list to inspire a new understanding of our aging communities and the value they bring to our youngest residents.

We are pleased to be able to share these Age-Friendly selections with you. Enjoy!

Susan Berger,
Aging System Policy Coordinator
