  "The Living Room ... a place for adults" is a program, initiated in 2008 through a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) federal/state grant called Transforming Life after 50: Public Libraries and Baby Boomers. The aim of the program is to help all adults under, around and over 50 years of age rediscover the library as their community living room, a place to connect, get active and learn. The LSTA grant that launched the program was designed to ensure that the Library is meeting the needs of this demographic group (born 1946-1964). Since its start in 2008, "The Living Room...a place for adults" has served as a model for the community it was designed to engage and support.
