    • FELLOWSHIP PURPOSE
      • Increases in longevity have created a “new life stage” (of almost 30 years) between middle and late life.
      • Boomers (adults born between 1946-1964) are the first cohort to move through this new stage; they account for 78 million Americans.
      • Library services for “seniors” do not match the characteristics, talents, or interests of this Boomer generation.
      • Expand library innovation in serving and engaging this population of adults, ages 50+, transforming libraries in the process.
    • BACKGROUND
      • National initiative undertaken by Libraries for the Future [2006-2009]
      • California initiative trained 44 libraries, assisted 30 with community assessments, funded 24 targeted grants up to $20,000 each, and disseminated lessons learned [2007-2010].
    • CALIFORNIA RESPONSES
      • Boomer Information Zone (BIZ) provided a space and resources for Boomer networking, re-careering and social networking.
      • Taking the Bite Out of the Sandwich Years connected Boomers to local resources on topics about redefining aging, caring for an aging parent, and re-careering.
      • BeHealthy5 offered a program series and monthly activity checklists promoting financial, mental, social, physical and spiritual health.
      • Tame Your Tech allowed users to experiment with and evaluate technology gadgets for free.
      • Feed Your Head featured experts on brain fitness and healthy aging.
      • Digital Stories gathered first-hand accounts of 1960’s public school integration efforts and brought a community together.
      • Volunteer Hub facilitated community-wide opportunities for Boomer volunteers via a library volunteer webpage and conference.
      • Volunteer Speakers Bureau enabled Boomers to share a lifetime of expertise while helping the library provide low-cost programming.
    • WHAT IS A FELLOWSHIP?
      • A Fellow is part of a group of people who work together as peers in the pursuit of knowledge or practice.
      • The Fellowship will provide you with information and ideas but as important, it will help you frame productive questions.
      • You, as Fellows, must each precipitate and participate by sharing your knowledge, asking questions, joining in conversations, mentoring each other, and trying new things.
    • LEARNING PHILOSOPHY
      • As adult Fellows, we believe you:
      • Are self-directed
      • Have life experiences and knowledge worth contributing
      • Are goal-oriented
      • Are relevancy-oriented
      • Are practical
      • As leaders/facilitators, we believe our role is to:
      • Create a conducive and stimulating learning environment
      • Keep barriers to participation low
      • Provide feedback and facilitate participation among Fellows
    • HOW LEARNING IS CHANGING
      • Individuals will increasingly reshape institutions, rather than vice versa
      • So to “transform” our libraries, we must start with the journey that each of us must make as individuals
        • Trajectory: Know where you’re going – What are you most passionate about?
        • Leverage: Connect with others and mobilize resources that already exist
        • Pace: Become agile and willing to risk so that you can move quickly in response to change and opportunity.
