Fresno County Public Library

 

Designed and provided 4 half-day informational expos aimed at Boomers on four key topics of interest: health, financial planning, leisure, and citizenship – the latter aimed primarily at the large Southeast Asian community now in Fresno. In partnership with various community organizations, each expo had highlighted guest speakers. The expos were promoted through the community partnerships, extensive local media outlets, printed flyers and bookmarks, and on the library’s website. Each expo also helped identify community organizations interested in ongoing collaborations, including providing future Boomer focused programs at the library. Each expo included, on average, 15 vendors and 5 speakers and drew 175-250 participants. Developed a Boomer page on the library's website that includes links to Boomer related community resources.
