Serving Older Adults in a Changing World

Tuesday, November 8, 2016 ♦ 3:00 pm Eastern / 12:00 pm Pacific ♦ 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/serving-older-adults-in-a-changing-world.html

With longer life expectancy and increasing diversity, older adults are reinventing aging and changing perceptions of their demographic. It’s time to rethink how our libraries serve this important and growing segment of our patron base. This webinar will focus on trends and impacts of the aging population, and will share creative strategies for library staff to meet the evolving needs of older adults in a changing world.

Engaged Planning: Ask What You Can Do for Your Rural Community

Thursday, December 1, 2016 ♦ 3:00 pm Eastern / 12:00 pm Pacific ♦ 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/engaged-planning.html

Your community needs the library, and planning for the future of your library begins with understanding the community and their aspirations. Once you understand what your rural community wants and needs, you can assess how the library can help them. In this webinar, understand the important steps of this engaged planning process, including internal assessment, data collection and analysis, trustee involvement, and community conversations. Learn what it means for your library to “turn outward” to secure its place at the heart of your community.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries<http://arsl.info/>.

Presented by: Cindy Fesemyer, Director, Columbus (WI) Public Library, population 5,000
