Most American communities are aging, and libraries are in a position to identify opportunities to meet the needs of older adults in their communities. Your library can help anticipate the growing technological needs of mature audiences, so they can better understand the digital landscape.
In this 60-minute webinar, you’ll learn how you can increase opportunities for older adults in your community to learn the latest gadgets, obtain government resources and services, develop personal awareness, and actively participate with accessible gaming equipment. Discover how your library will remain a vital point for seniors who wish to engage more deeply with the world around them.
