Program Ideas – Vital Aging Network

October 31, 2007 at 6:21 pm Leave a comment

Smiling Adults The Vital Aging Network (VAN) is a group based out of St. Paul, Minnesota.  The organization is described as “individuals who are sharing our strengths to promote and support the self-sufficiency, community participation, and quality of life of older adults.”  VAN holds monthly forums on topics ranging from creativity to caregiving to the cultural wisdom of elders.   

This organization’s forums provide a model of best practice programming for older adults, and can be a great source for program ideas in your library.  Check out the “Forum Summaries” page for an overview of their most recent workshops.  Are there similar interest groups in your community geared towards older adults with whom you have partnered or collaborating with in the future? What has been your experience?
