Your Library Needs You!

Services for 50+ Adults


The Library strives to meet the needs of all New Yorkers, as well as its virtual community worldwide. As the average age increases with the aging of the Baby Boom generation—generally accepted as those born 1946-1964—the Library has added links and programs targeting those 50 and over. Also, a Next Chapter blog channel focuses on the 50+ population and many related library programs and services.
