The Library Memory Project is a partnership between public libraries in Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, and Racine Counties with a mission to provide programs to those affected by memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia.

There are currently 21 public libraries involved in the Project: the Lake Country Memory Project; the Wild Plum Memory Project; and the Purple Springs Memory Project. Coming soon: a memory cafe in Waukesha and rotating memory cafes in Jefferson County! Due to the pandemic, we transitioned to online only memory cafes in June of 2020. We are beginning to offer in-person memory cafes beginning in July 2021. See our events page for more information. A memory cafe is a social gathering for those who are experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and for their families, friends, or care partners.

Libraries involved in the memory project also offer educational programs on memory loss and brain health.
