LINK Project

LINK_LOGO_bw_finalTorrance Public Library Lifelong Information, Networks, and Knowledge (LINK) is a grant-funded project designed to link local Baby Boomers with community services and programs, and provide increased access to the wealth of educational, informational, cultural, and recreational opportunities in the South Bay.

Our local LINK project is part of a larger effort initiated by the California State Library and State Librarian, Susan Hildreth, to provide enhanced library services for Baby Boomers (the generation born between 1946-1964).  Torrance Public Library was chosen as one of twenty-one libraries throughout the state to help individuals with “transforming life after 50.” For more information on the statewide initiative, visit the Transforming Life After 50 website.

LINK Logs is just one component of the overall project, which includes enhancing the Library’s website, creating and providing access to Library podcasts, rejuvenating the Library’s volunteer program, and hosting two community events  (travel and health fairs).

LINK Logs is intended to serve as a forum for public communication and as a resource filled with fun, interesting, and we hope, helpful information for Baby Boomers and others interested in learning about and connecting with their community.

For more information on the LINK project, please contact Paula Weiner, City Librarian, at pweiner@torrnet.com or (310) 618-5950.
