Coming to Grand Junction *and* Lamar: Adult Services Regional Workshop

August 16, 2024 at Mesa County's Central Library & October 18, 2024 at Lamar Public Library

Colorado State Library is inviting you and your librarians and staff to the inaugural Adult Services Regional Workshops: 

Adult Service Regional Workshop with two illustrations of adults engaging in conversations and games

Adult Services in libraries isn’t just book clubs and local history events. Services, programs, and resources for adults are incredibly varied and just as dynamic. Six hours is nowhere close to enough to cover all the topics and nuances relevant to library services to adults, but it’s a start.

Participants will learn about the changing demographics of their communities, consider their community’s needs, and come up with creative ways of addressing those needs in a collaborative, supportive environment with their peers.

Topics covered in the 2024 Adult Services Workshop are:

  •         Aging in Colorado: Numbers, Ideas, and Resources
  •         Overdose Prevention and Harm Reduction
  •         Homelessness
  •         Adult Literacy

This promises to be a day of interactive learning, reflection on our own individual and unique communities, and collaboration.

Coffee and tea, boxed lunch, snacks, and refreshments will be provided. An additional optional hour for networking and knowledge sharing has been scheduled for the end of the day.

Registration is free but is required.

Can’t make it to this event? We are taking this show on the road and will be your neck of the woods soon. For more information and details on upcoming dates and location, email Cristy Moran, Adult Library Services Senior Consultant, at
