Over 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 every day, and the fastest growing demographic in the U.S. is women over the age of 85, according to the 2015 White House Conference on Aging. Thorndike Press and Library Journal are partnering for a 60-minute webinar to discuss how libraries can support their aging communities in the 21st Century. One of the speakers is Wendy Pender, who presented at PLA this year on this very topic! We hope you can join us to discuss this important issue so we can all be more supportive of this growing group of our population.
