Free Creative Aging Webinar-The Importance of Partnerships in Libraries

Jul 9, 2024

Older adults in our communities are seeking opportunities to keep learning, meeting new people, and experiencing joy. Libraries across the country are answering the call by providing innovative creative aging programs that engage older adults in creative and artistic activities that enhance well-being and highlight our potential for growth and creativity at every age.

How do libraries get started with and grow creative aging programs? Community partnerships are key!

In this free webinar, national creative aging experts from Lifetime Arts will share an overview of creative aging and its benefits for older adults and libraries. You’ll then hear from three library workers who are running successful programs in both rural and urban communities throughout Wyoming, including Cristine Braddy from the Goshen County Library in Torrington, Sarah Neubauer from the Natrona County Library in Casper, and Krisene Watson from the Campbell County Public Library in Gillette. Each library professional will share specific tips and strategies for how to leverage community partnerships in your area to reach new audiences, secure space and materials, collaborate with content experts, and expand your library’s capacity to host creative aging programming.

The webinar will be July 23, 2024, 10:00-11:00 a.m. MDT and is intended for library workers involved in creative aging programs and anyone interested in strengthening existing partnerships or cultivating new ones! This workshop is perfect for library workers new to creative aging and those who want to energize and expand their creative aging offerings. It’s for everyone interested in better serving older adults.
