As the popularity of public libraries continually grows, they are becoming the hub of the community. With this, each library has to constantly provide services, materials, and space catered to each category of patron. While many focus their efforts on children and teens, older adults are becoming a much more significant division with the patron population. This paper discusses the information needs of all senior citizens, specifically when paired with today’s public library, as well as many of the resources public libraries have put into place, in order to deliver the materials, accessibility, outreach, and workshops needed.
