Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:The Silver Tsunami and Your Library-Learn to Surf or Be Swept Away!
Description:The news is everywhere about the aging of America and our changing population.  Aging affects the individual, the family, and the community. What does this mean for you and your library?  Come hear the latest research and learn about trends in this worldwide phenomenon.  We’ll ponder how libraries are being impacted in multiple ways and you’ll have an opportunity to contribute to our collective wisdom.  How can we respond to this seismic shift?  How can we utilize the expertise inherent in an older population?  How can libraries best serve this diverse and growing segment of our society?  How can we partner with other community organizations to expand our reach and impact?  Join us for this fast-paced hour and leave with proven programs and successful strategies as well as a new appreciation for your own aging process!
Learning Objectives:
  • Increased empathy and appreciation for ourselves and others who are aging
  • Greater awareness of trends pertaining to aging (sociological, health, economic, technology, innovations)
  • Greater knowledge of possible library programs and services for older adults
