Connecting with Older Adults


The pandemic of 2020 had hit every age group but the hardest hit has been the older adult population. As libraries reopen many in this age group are worried about going to public places or may not able to visit due to physical and cognitive issues. Many living in senior facilities are not visited by their local library. The presenter will share information about connecting with older adults and library outreach programming from years of working with older adults. Plus, information received from interviews with librarians from around the country who are currently working and creating programs for older adults.
