Members and Friends Share

1.       Carla McLean (a retired librarian) has an intriguing tip for us. The Seattle Public Library has a little-known service whereby one can request five book titles on any subject. See the attached for her recent request and their response: https://www.spl.org/programs-and-services/authors-and-books/your-next-5-books

2.       Two Wider Horizons members are sharing good rental opportunities. See attached for a rental at Jackson Park Co-Housing (Sylvie Kashdan) and my digs at Margaret Fisher’s (I move on February 24 and the room is available March 1.)


3.    From Audrey Hansen: An “advance directive” for driving is one tool that can help seniors and their loved ones plan for post-driving life. https://wapo.st/4aX7a0C
