The Journal of Intergenerational Relationships also has a call for papers from intergenerational shared sites.  They would love to have a library actively providing a variety of ongoing intergenerational programs submit a field article.  Here is the call for papers.  It would be wonderful to discover a library which could be a model nationally and internationally.
