Expanding Library Services to the Elderly. Public Library Training Institutes Library Service Guide No. 22. Revised.
A guide for providing library services to the elderly begins with a rationale and a statement from the Adult Services Division of the American Library Association regarding services to the elderly. Then planning considerations are described, such as library board and staff, surveying needs and programs, and special problems of the elderly. Interests and kinds of materials are discussed, as are in-house, outreach, and institutional services. Following information on publicity and costs, 11 existing programs in public libraries are briefly described. There are lists of suggested readings and of sources of materials for seniors, as well as a sample survey for senior community residents. (LS)
