Description: From Booklist
Although it includes suggestions for working with homebound and visually impaired patrons, this manual aims to help librarians who want to attract and serve a much broader and more active audience. The emphasis is on the diversity of the aging population. The strategies and programming ideas come from public libraries in the U.S and Canada that responded to a questionnaire. Part 1 focuses on bringing seniors into the library by devising a comprehensive plan, building a meaningful collection, partnering with other agencies, grooming volunteers, and offering informing and entertaining programs that appeal to older patrons and to multigenerational groups. Part 2 provides guidance on delivering services where seniors live. Appendixes include practical advice from the contributors, electronic resources, book lists for senior programming, and ESL and international resources. This pragmatic manual should prove useful to any library needing to evaluate current offerings or to plan new or expanded services. RBB

Here's a handbook for planning and delivering innovative library services to one of today's fastest growing demographic groups: older adults.

The authors provide practical guidance on partnering with other agencies; mixing seniors and youth for reading and storytimes as well as for computer-based activities. Programs covered include book and film discussion groups and topics ranging from cooking to travel to games and historical eras. You'll also find step-by-step guidance for implementing Internet services to seniors, volunteer programs, outreach and homebound services, and services to residential facilities. A special section lists print and on-line sources for tips from other librarians reaching out to an aging population. Honnold and Mesaros show how to revitalize your l! ibrary's services to seniors with this comprehensive how-to manual.
