This study investigated the provision of community library services and adult literacy education for aged people living in rural communities in Nigeria by public services librarians who are in charge of overseeing the library's programs and services geared toward the aged. The researchers adopted a conceptual framework for the study to determine the literacy objectives and the significance of the topic for people of advanced age who live in rural communities. The difficulties encountered by librarians in providing library services to the aged were discussed. The paper recommended strategies to help aged people in Nigeria who live in rural areas learn to read and write.
