Out of an abundance of caution, Age Friendly Seattle events will occur online (live and/or recorded) until it is safe for older people and anyone with a compromised immune system to attend indoor events in person.

Following is information about our monthly Civic Coffee and special events, when scheduled. For information about past events, scroll down to Previous Events. 

Welcome, Seattle Public Library!

We welcome The Seattle Public Library as a co-sponsor of our Civic Coffees in 2022!
