“This work is a helpful and necessary tool for a librarian involved in and responsible for programming for seniors. I recommend this book, as it fills a void in training and offers insight into characteristics and experiences associated with aging as well as programming guidance and suggestions. Particularly informative are the profiles of the different groups included within the aging population demographic.” —Elizabeth Tait, Adult Services Librarian, Westerville Public Library
“This well-researched book will inspire librarians to connect in imaginative ways with seniors in their community. The accessible, instructional writing will be appreciated not only by those new to programming, but also by experienced librarians who can adapt the structure and themes for their patrons.”—Beth Flerlage, Assistant Librarian/The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple
“On the Go with Senior Services is a highly readable, well researched, comprehensive guide to outreach, including many ready-to-go programs. Even first-timers will feel like pros in no time!”—Martha Matthews, Adult Programming Coordinator, MidPointe Library System
“Providing programming at senior living facilities may be uncharted territory for many libraries. If you’re looking to begin offering programs for senior residents, start your research with this book. Find inspiration to take seniors to the past or around the world, make everyone an artist or author, empower them to use technology confidently, and connect with people living with dementia.”—Jennie Fidler, Special Services Coordinator, Oconomowoc Public Library
