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