"[T]his book will help the 21st-century public librarian in developing and implementing adult services that address the composition, diversity, and needs of today's adults. Created in response to the need for a textbook for a course in materials and services for adults in a course taught by the author, this book is written for the novice librarian, but can also be used by the experienced librarian who wishes to revise their knowledge of adult services in today's changing world." - ARBA
"Much needed and highly anticipated. . . . A mixture of theoretical knowledge, real-world examples, and much practical information make this book valuable as both a library and information textbook and a compendium of useful information for practitioners. . . . [T]his work [is] a very valuable purchase for public libraries and schools of library and information studies." - Public Libraries
"As a textbook for library and information professionals, Library Services for Adults in the 21st Century is thorough and clearly organized. Okobi draws well on the existing literature, and library school students will be grateful that the author makes sure throughout to point the reader toward other relevant and authoritative resources. The book includes excellent bibliographies and indices." - College & Research Libraries
