library signs off on prime time

At it's board meeting last last month, the Eastern Regional Library board (of which I'm deputy chairperson) signed off on Prime Time, a strategy and action plan designed with mature aged people in mind.

The plan is to ensure that quality library services are provided for mature age people across the region. It will guide the development of sustainable and relevant services to meet the needs of our ageing population.

Prime Time aims to provide opportunities for older people to remain active and participate in life long learning through technology. It will also provide opportunities for inter-generational connection by using young people as tutors.

It's extensive in its scope and looks at how we communicate appropriately, how we ensure our library spaces are well configured for older community members.

There's some interesting and diverse services in the plan, I look forward to seeing them delivered throughout the Eastern Regional Libraries in Yarra Ranges.
