Libraries and Aging 101: Educate, Engage and Empower Mature Adults

In this four-week course, librarian and gerontologist Fatima Perkins shares data-driven strategies that will help you assess the needs of the older population in your community and create impactful programs and services.

This presentation is for any library staff person interested in creating or enhancing impactful programs and services for the ever-growing older population.
