Creative Aging Series

Thanks to a grant, RPL is running a series for those 55+!

Seniors of Renfrew: Their Stories

Seniors of Renfrew is part of the Renfrew Public Library’s Creative Aging series. The aim of this project is to build a collection of stories and portraits from the community to celebrate and honour all of the diverse journeys that brought people to this area.

We invite anyone in the community, aged 55 and over to come in for an interview so we can learn about the unique stories and experiences that bring people and/or their families to Renfrew. At the same time, we ask for a photograph.

If you or someone you know would like to participate, please reach out. We would love to include your stories as well! We will happily add it to the collection. Please find the interview template below and drop it off at the library or send it to us at

Creative Aging Programs
