Google Maps is a mapping application that offers satellite imagery, street maps, and street-view perspectives.

About the Digital Skills Ready@50+™ program

Learning new skills, especially digital ones, can be exciting and intimidating. Two in five adults aged 50+ feel technology is not inclusive. That's why we're excited to team up with AARP Foundation, Older Adults Technology Services (OATS), and its flagship program, Senior Planet, to provide the Digital Skills Ready@50+™ program in our community. Senior Planet instructors will teach the sessions live via Zoom. We will have an on-site library facilitator during the sessions.
