Summary
Focusing on adult patrons ages 19 through senior citizens, this book explains how libraries can best serve this busy portion of their community's population at different life stages and foster experiences that are "worth the trip" -- whether actual or virtual. Ann Roberts helps librarians make their libraries the go-to places in the community for both information and recreation; enables librarians to accurately analyze the demographics of their communities and identify the services needed; offers simple suggestions to help librarians with limited resources provide age-appropriate services; and describes information and resources most likely needed during each life stage, making it easier to target the audience for both programming and publicity
