The Bridges Library System is excited to announce that four libraries from Waukesha and Milwaukee counties- Muskego, New Berlin, Franklin, and Hales Corners- have come together to form the Four Points Memory Project. Each library will take turns hosting monthly Memory Cafes, which are social gatherings for those living with memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia, as well as their family members or caregivers. The Four Points project was developed in response to the fantastic success of the Lake Country Libraries Memory Project, a group of four other Waukesha County libraries.
To celebrate this new program, the Four Points Memory Project is hosting a Kick-off Event at New Berlin Public Library on Tuesday, January 19 from 2:00-3:30 pm. The event is free and open to all, and will feature a presentation by John T. McFadden, an advocate of Memory Cafes who brought the program idea to the United States after seeing its positive effects in England.
There is no charge to attend but registration is required for all new attendees. To register, please contact Wendy Betley of the Alzheimer’s Association at 414-479-8800.
We look forward to seeing you there!
