Intergenerational Programming in Libraries: A Manual Based on the Experiences of the South Bay Cooperative Library System.
Green, Marilyn V.
The first four of the 11 chapters in this manual focus on the background of the intergenerational program, various workshops, and additional training aids that were used, while chapters 5 to 9 and 11 provide information for other communities that wish to implement intergenerational programs. Topics covered include senior citizen volunteers in the library; publicizing the program using various media; special programs such as crafts, contests, dolls, games, quilting, and historical, genealogy, and music programs; and films on aging. An evaluation of the program at the South Bay Cooperative Library System and the questionnaires used are provided in chapter 10, and the final chapter identifies other intergenerational programs. Numerous and extensive annotated listings of relevant publications and organizations are provided in most of the chapters. The appendix also provides annotated citations of numerous publications on American farm life; aging and the aged; gerontology and intergenerational programming; picture books, and fiction for children, young adults and adults; as well as questionnaires on aging, slide shows on ageism, and lists of living and deceased famous people over 70 years old.
