Book Description:

"Lifelong learning" isn't just a pleasant catch phrase used in community college advertisements; it's a reality that we all need to continue our education and acquire new skills well past our formative years. For the economically disadvantaged members of our communities, the public library is often the only avenue to the technology and information they need.

About the Author:

Elsie A. Rogers Halliday Okobi, MLS, MSIS, EdD, is associate professor of library and information science at the Department of Information and Library Sciences, Southern Connecticut State University, New Haven.
