Transforming Life after Fifty IMLS Initiative
For folks over the age of 50 in Washington State, public library services will be markedly different by the year 2012. That is, assuming the 19 Washington public libraries that attended the the Transforming Life after Fifty Institute in Portland achieve their goals.
The Institute provided an extensive two-and-a-half days of training on issues that set the baby boomers apart from those who have gone before them. Different service methods are required to reach out to this distinctive group.
The Institute in Portland marked the beginning of a year of study for these fellows who come from every part of Washington State and represent all levels and types of public librarians. For more information about this fellowship, check out the Transforming Life after 50 website.

This is a great approach. I am glad to see such an active approach to providing services specifically focused on my generation.
Thanks and keep up the good work.
Proud to be a Baby Boomer 🙂
