Booklist Review

This handy guide for public librarians draws on statistics that chart the projected increases in the country's aged population. From the raw data, Rubin and McGovern offer solid suggestions to help librarians determine how to best serve this growing demographic group. Specifics are offered on identifying target users, on materials and services, on public relations, on gaining the support of local officials, and on acquiring funding. Originally compiled with the California community in mind, this useful professional tool presents advice that is in fact universal. The lists of print, organizational, and multimedia resources are especially valuable. --Denise Perry ~Donavin
