To celebrate Older Americans Month in May 2016, San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) hosted a special event called Senior Speed Connect @ Igo. (Igo is the name of our branch.) The program was patterned after Senior Speed Dating, which was depicted in "The Age of Love," a documentary shown at the SAPL Central Library in February.
Unlike Senior Speed Dating, the Igo event was to renew and make new friendships rather than romantic connections. The event featured a catered lunch, meet and greet activities, door prizes, vintage music and more.
A Texas library put a unique spin on speed dating to help older adults combat loneliness.
