Summary Adults over the age of 50 constitute some of the most engaged and frequent users of public libraries. They may also be the most misunderstood, since the behavior, interests, and information needs of older adults have changed dramatically with the addition of the Baby Boomers. This book offers advice on how to reshape library services for this new generation of active older adults
