The Kern County Library hopes to attract more baby boomers by getting to know them better with a survey.
In interviews in early 2008, boomers told library officials "they wanted a gathering place where people with the same interests could meet to swap ideas, meet new people, exchange information and socialize in a relaxed setting," according to Kristie Coons, who helped coordinate the successful effort to secure a grant for the project.
Survey results will help the library focus topics already being discussed, including programs on caring for aging parents and financial goals.
Pick up the survey at any Kern County Library branch or take it online at kerncountylibrary.org.
