New Study on Postsecondary Participation Among Older Adults

Lifelong Access Colleagues,

With the turn of the New Year, we are all focusing on the key roles that libraries can play in the lives of 50+ adults, especially in the context of increased longevity and worsened economic conditions.  A new study by the American Council on Education underscores the importance of post-secondary education opportunities for older adults.    This study may be helpful to you as you consider lifelong learning programs in 2009 at your library.   It may also be helpful in framing the issues for your conversations with Trustees, colleagues and community partners.

Best wishes for 2009!
