Check it Out! Building Intergenerational Bridges @ the Library

Plasterhand(3) photo-1Everyone loves the library! And as you know, libraries can be used for so much more besides reading and checking out books. In October, Andrea spoke at the annual conference of the New England Library Association about how to engage “bookend generations” at the library. She received such positive feedback that we created a programming page devoted to all the ways one can use the library for intergenerational programming! Our suggestions range from book groups to art exhibits to technology projects – and loads more! Of course, you can also use your local library as a place to hold a Bridges program. Chelmsford Public Library provided space for a Bridges: Our Smarts program, and you can watch a short video about it on our YouTube channel. Check out our list of activities here; if you use one of these ideas – or if you start a different intergenerational activity – in your library, we’d love to hear about it!
