We just posted our October 2015 Meeting Minutes. Hope you will join us in with our planned activities.

Please feel free to give feedback on the planned activities. The Committee plans to recommend revisions to the older adult toolkit -- What do you think should be added to update the toolkit?

We are also exploring opportunities to write articles about library services and engagement for the mature population - Do you have any suggestions about topics and or venues? Please share!
