Short summary: in collaboration with medics, psychologists, media and yoga specialists Kaunas County Public Library took part in improving the availability of reliable information about health that is important to the seniors. Moreover, the project also encouraged the seniors to propagate healthy lifestyle, be physically active and start using reliable sources for information about health (books, internet, other electronic sources, etc.). In order to reach the goal, there were 5 new computer workstations established in KCPL for readers and there were organized trainings for computer literacy skill improvement as well as special trainings to search for information regarding health. In addition, the Library added more books about health to the book fund and there were conference and meetings with famous people arranged.
