Just last month, mandatory retirement officially ended in Ontario. This means that now more than ever, people can retire from their careers at many different ages. Such a wide variety of ages can translate into a wide variety of interests. We at the Halton Hills Public Library can help you start to discover your interests and embark on a truly active and fulfilling retirement. Here are few ideas: Travel can be a fantastic opportunity and the library can help. Choose where you would like to go by watching a travel DVD; borrow a guide book to help plan your sightseeing or to find a place to stay; borrow a language CD to help you speak with the locals; or take along some audiobooks to keep you amused on the long trip south. Retirement can be a chance to take up that hobby you have always wanted to try, but have never had the time. Borrow a how-to book or DVD to learn woodworking, hone your cooking skills or become a wine connoisseur. Unravel the mystery of your new digital camera, or discover VoIP (voice over internet protocol) so that you can not only chat with the grandkids but also see how much they have grown. Retirement can be a wonderful time to relax. Come explore our music CD collection for some soothing tunes or party favourites. Catch up on the latest newspapers and magazines in our periodicals section. Take time out for a good book or

take in an evening of movies on DVD. Less time at the office sometimes mean it is harder to keep up with the latest news. Our online databases contain articles from hundreds of magazines and newspapers. Search the latest in health information or stock markets strategies from the library or from your computer at home. Retiring from one career can be a great time to embark on another. The library has all sorts of resources for helping you start a small business. So if retirement has left you with a little extra time on your hands, why not visit your local public library, visit our website, or give us a call at 905-873-2681 (Georgetown) or 519-853-0301 (Acton). We'd be happy to help you explore then many resources we have available.
