Butte County Library

Butte County Library offered a series of programs on topics of interest and relevance to area adults, ages 50+. Subject areas were identified by external community scans and included business and financial planning, technology, local history, and volunteering. Five two-hour presentations on each of these topics were given, with a total of 305 people in attendance. Almost all program attendees indicated they gained a better understanding of each of the topic areas covered.  In addition, the associated promotional materials for this program series won the CLA PRExcellence First Place Award in the less than $5 million budget category. Also as a result of this project, the library formed an important, new partnership with Chico State’s Interdisciplinary Center on Aging.

Grant: $7,700
