“What does adult services mean in your library? Are you reaching 20- and 30-somethings who don’t have children? What happens to well-served teen patrons when they become adults? They have created a connection with us and we need to work on keeping that connection”

Outreach ideas include moving book discussions to a more grown-up venue, old-school board game nights, home-buying seminars, and more.
