How will I stay healthy and active in retirement?
The library has the following resources to help you maintain vigor and health throughout your retirement years. They contain a wealth of tips to help you achieve your best physical and mental health during retirement.
I would like to dedicate this series of articles on retirement to Harold Ferguson who retired from the Upper Arlington Public Library this month. He has been a welcoming presence at the Circulation Desk for many years. He has earned a fulfilling, healthful and comfortable retirement.
