Participants will be introduced to creative and fun ways to expand and strengthen programming at senior facilities and at the library, especially for patrons living with dementia. Whether utilizing memory kits, travel and reading programs, and antique items to inspire memories and encourage conversations, or by incorporating painting, stuffed animals, therapy dogs, and music activities to stimulate the senses, participants can develop ideas that work for their library, community, and budget. Learn from the experiences and successes of David J. Kelsey and Lynda Spraner, Outreach Services Department staff at St. Charles Public Library in St. Charles, IL.
