Services to the Aging in Genesee County

Sage logoThe SAGE program provides library services to older adults in Genesee County who are unable to visit the library. SAGE is funded by a grant from the Muriel Marshall Fund for the Aging.

Overseen by the Rochester Area Community Foundation, the fund is a bequest from the estate of Roxanne Marshall who named it in honor of her mother.  Ms. Marshall, a former school librarian, wished to enhance the quality of life for older adults in Genesee County.

Adults at least 60 years old who are confined to their homes due to extended illness, physical disability or transportation problems and who would like to enjoy the benefits that a library has to offer are eligible for the services of this program.

SAGE also provides rotating collections of large print books and media items to senior housing complexes, adult daycare facilities, and nursing homes in Genesee County.
