The Home News Tribune has a very nice article about the Senior Spaces program held at the Library which brought together teens and seniors to play games on the Nintendo Wii:

"Seniors, alongside teenage volunteers, tested their mettle in the ubiquitous air-guitar video game and various other games available for the Nintendo Wii gaming system as the first step in the library's plan to make seniors more technologically proficient and to include them in what Allan Kleiman, assistant director of the Old Bridge Public Library, called the inevitable redesign of libraries."

For more information about Senior programming, please contact: Allan Kleiman
