Adults just wanna have fun : programs for emerging adults 
Audrey Barbakoff
Chicago : ALA Editions, an imprint of the American Library Association, 2016
There are a wealth of resources out there geared towards serving the needs of toddlers, school age children, young adults, and senior citizens. But something’s missing. Library users in their 20s and 30s constitute one of the most underserved populations for public libraries, and there’s a scarcity of guidance on how to target them. Barbakoff’s fun and practical programming book helps to fill that gap.

 

 

The new librarianship field guide
R. David Lankes ; with contributions from others
Cambridge, Massachusetts : The MIT Press, [2016]
This book offers a guide for librarians who see their profession as a chance to make a positive difference in their communities — librarians who recognize that it is no longer enough to stand behind a desk waiting to serve. R. David Lankes, author of The Atlas of New Librarianship, reminds librarians of their mission: to improve society by facilitating knowledge creation in their communities. In this book, he provides tools, arguments, resources, and ideas for fulfilling this mission. Librarians will be prepared to become radical positive change agents in their communities, and other readers will learn to understand libraries in a new way.
