Phillis Wheatley Community Center creates opportunities for seniors (ages 65 and up) to be physically active, to socialize and to fellowship with one another. From line dancing to field trips, come have some fun!
The Senior Social gives adults the opportunity to be active, connect with one another, engage in arts and crafts, and play games! The program is geared towards seniors age 65 and up, and we serve light snacks to enjoy before the activities begin.
Come experience fellowship and fun that will keep you “forever young!”
Home to the first library for African Americans in Greenville County, education has long been a core value of the Phillis Wheatley Community Center and reestablishing the library was a top priority after the Grand Reopening of the Center. From generous donations of books and furnishings from area schools, private collections, and local businesses, the library reopened in November of 2021.
Though times have changed a bit since the early 1900’s, the library at PWCC remains a place for reflection and quiet learning. But with the addition of modern technology, it has been transformed into a space where you are as likely to find participants from our Senior Social streaming on-line exercise classes as you are to find a volunteer helping a child learn to read.
The library is open during our regular operating hours and is for all ages. We ask that you enjoy the books, puzzles and records in the library room for now. We will be launching a check-out system soon.
