Library director honored

by Jean Hofacket

Alameda County Library Senior Services Director, Richard Bray, has been selected as a Fellow in the first ever Lifelong Access Libraries Leadership Institute. According to the national library advocacy organization, Americans for Libraries Council, Bray was honored "In recognition of his commitment to advancing library service to baby boomers and other older adults currently reaching retirement age." The Institute will train this first class of Lifelong Access Libraries Fellows to lead the nation's libraries in enhancing services for older adults with opportunities for active learning, creative exploration, and meaningful civic engagement.

The Institute runs from July 31 to Aug. 4, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. It is one component of a multi-year Lifelong Access Libraries initiative funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies. The Institute will be co-hosted by two entities at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill: School of Information and Library Science, and Institute on Aging. A total of 23 Lifelong Access Libraries Fellows will receive training and inspiration.
