What Is the Library Memory Project?

The Library Memory Project is a partnership between public libraries in Waukesha, Washington, and Milwaukee Counties with a mission to provide programs to those affected by memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia. A main component of the memory project is a monthly social gathering for those with early stage dementia or mild cognitive impairment and a care partner, called a Memory Cafe. The Library Memory Project has three monthly memory cafes, one hosted by the Lake Country Libraries Memory Project, a second by the Four Points Library Memory Project and last, one by the Wild Plum Library Memory Project. Libraries involved in the memory project will also offer educational programs on memory loss and brain health.
