Athens-Clarke County Library
The Athens-Clarke County Library will partner with the Lyndon House Arts Center in an innovative collaboration to develop new services and programs for the aging baby boomer population, born between 1946 and 1964. The partnership will include local baby boomers as advisers who will help guide the project to meet the needs of this target audience. The goals and objectives are to provide lifelong learning opportunities for and by older, active adults and expanding museum and library services beyond existing walls. The partners will generate new users through creative use of new technology, employing live webcasts and a video archive of these programs. The project will develop a best practices model to engage boomers in the work and mission of libraries and museums in their communities.
