IMLS Western Regional Fellowship: Transforming Life After 50 Introductory Webinar
In times of rapid change and increasingly complex choices, how can libraries continue to be relevant? One promising strategy is to take advantage of a unique societal trend – the changing nature of aging and the implications of extended adulthood – and make dynamic connections that can leverage creative library transformation.
- Does everyone in your library share the same understanding and vision regarding the new patterns of aging?
- Do you want to explore new ways of engaging and serving older adults and your community at large?
- Are you looking for strategies that will position your library as a critical community resource well into the future?
- Are you ready to become an innovator and leader on this issue?
This webinar will introduce Transforming Life After 50 Fellows to the demographic changes and related social impacts that have inspired new insights into human development and aging. The potential consequences for all cultural institutions, but especially libraries, will be explored. An overview to the new scholarship on aging and longevity will be presented and will lay the foundation for the year-long Fellowship ahead. In addition, the webinar will provide Fellows with an overview to the coming year, including the learning objectives, activities and expectations to be met in order to fulfill the Fellowship.
