In communities across the country, libraries provide valuable services, programs and initiatives that enhance the quality of life of community members. Libraries can also serve as a key partner for the Aging Network in helping older adults stay engaged and connected to their communities.

Join engAGED: The National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults for a webinar to learn how the Aging Network can work with libraries to promote social engagement opportunities for older adults. Speakers from three Area Agencies on Aging, including a member of the American Library Association, will highlight innovative partnerships their AAAs have formed with libraries, how they have enhanced partnerships during COVID-19 to address increased social isolation, and how other Aging Network organizations can create similar partnerships and programs.
