America's population is aging, retirement is changing, and the need for lifelong learning in later years is growing. Addressing these issues, the Peninsula Library System in California, partnering with state library agencies in California, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, will develop and offer a fellowship program to practicing librarians designed to improve library services to older adults. Fellows will learn from leaders in the field of aging, health, lifelong learning, and civic engagement, applying their lessons to libraries. The project will result in new and innovative models for library service to seniors.
