>Fellowships Available for Lifelong Access Libraries Leadership Institute


Libraries for the Future (LFF) invites applications from prospective Fellows for its third annual Lifelong Access Libraries Leadership Institute, to be held July 27-30, 2008 at the University of North Carolina, Chapel HIll.
The Institute will introduce participants to Lifelong Access, a framework for working with active older adults that promotes learning and civic engagement. Lifelong Access offers an alternative to the predominant deficit-based model of aging by approaching this stage of life as an opportunity for individual and community renewal.

The Institute will focus on three primary areas:

(1) concepts and research underlying new approaches to working with midlife and older adults;

(2) promising practices in library services, including the Lifelong Access framework for new older adult services; and

(3) leadership skills in community librarianship.

The full cost of Fellows’ travel, tuition, and room and board for the Institute will be covered by LFF.

The application is available online and must be accompanied by a statement of support from the library director. Selection will be on a competitive basis. The deadline for submitting an application is May 5, 2008. Please visit our website ( for further details.
