Not only does this book offer insights into how to better serve all seniors, but it also provides complete step-by-step instructions for dozens of exciting and engaging programs that can be held both onsite and offsite. While serving the senior population is a standard service in public libraries, it has traditionally focused on in-house programs and homebound services. On the Go with Senior Services is different. With this inspiring and practical guide, your library can rejuvenate its in-house services with new programs and also take them on the road—to retirement and assisted living communities, adult day care programs, and nursing homes and rehab centers. With such diversity in the senior population, this book describes strategies for designing senior programs that fit your community's needs. It offers a trove of templates for programs that range from crafts, word games, pop culture, pets, holidays, humor, mysteries, technology, and music. It offers tips and suggestions on how to interact with seniors, including those who may have a variety of physical and cognitive needs. There are also guidelines for working with individuals suffering from dementia. A robust list of further resources is provided. The growing population of seniors presents librarians with new challenges and opportunities, and this book is a valuable guide to navigating and embracing them. • Features program templates with step-by-step instructions guaranteed to save you time • Offers ideas for programs that can be conducted at the library or offsite senior facilities • Provides surefire ideas for working with seniors and technology • Covers segments of the senior population not thoroughly addressed in other professional sources, helping librarians fill in or expand into areas • Includes guidance on working with seniors with dementia or Alzheimer's

The people who shaped America's public-broadcasting system in the early 1970s believed that NPR should treat its listeners as citizens and not as consumers. NPR would offer programming that promoted empowerment and social change, appeal to the broad spectrum of U.S. society, and serve communities traditionally ignored by commercial broadcasting. This book tells the story of how NPR has tried to embody these ideals and the extent to which the network has reached its goals. Michael P. McCauley describes NPR's evolution from virtual obscurity when it was riddled with difficulties - political battles, unseasoned leadership, funding problems - to a first-rate broadcast organization. McCauley's work draws on a wealth of primary sources, including dozens of interviews with people who have been central to the NPR story. He examines various internal debates about the direction of NPR and the content of its programming. McCauley also places the development of NPR within the historical context of the wider U.S. radio industry, the ideological and political conflicts of postwar America, and contemporary debates about the ways in which mass media can better serve the citizens of a democracy.
