Westchester Library System, in partnership with Lifetime Arts, ALA’s Public Programs Office, and AARP Foundation, will improve, expand, and sustain creative aging programs in public libraries and position libraries as community cornerstones for positive aging.

Built on Lifetime Arts’ capacity-building model, this initiative reflects new scholarship on the benefits of social engagement and creative expression for healthy aging, employs nationally recognized best practices in arts education, and promotes partnerships between librarians and arts and community organizations.

Through the new Lifetime Arts Affiliate Network, up to 150 librarians will participate in in-depth training, receive ongoing technical assistance, participate in a national peer network, and receive support to implement programs in their communities.

The program will provide a practical, replicable, and sustainable approach for transforming library services for older adults to align with new knowledge, societal priorities, and collaborative practice.

Discussion Older Adult publication

Hello All,

Abigail gave me the idea of putting the link to my article here. Feel free to send it to any interested colleagues. I'm currently in the process of formulating my dissertation proposal which will incorporate librarians' thoughts and perceptions about the older demographic. I hope you can be a part of my research. :)
