Tech Fair at the Athens Public Library, Fri., Jan. 18, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Wondering how to use that new tech gadget you got as a holiday present? Your children or grandchildren showed you how to use your new toy, but now you forgot some essential details. Bring your device to the library for tech help. Friendly people will help you understand what to do, and show you how to make your device do what you want.
Free and open to the public.

Our Mission:

Enable members to live independently, comfortably and safely in their homes.

Our Vision:

A dynamic, responsive community of members who support meaningful and fulfilling lives for one another.

Research, including that of insurance companies, has shown that people are much better off in their own homes than in assisted living facilities. The Athens Village works with a number of local, regional and national agencies to further the interests of its members.
