The Library Memory Project is a partnership between public libraries and the Alzheimer’s Association of Southeastern Wisconsin. We also partner with the Milwaukee County Federated Library System and the Monarch Library System. The mission of the library memory project is to provide programs to those living with 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 Café.
There are several groupings of libraries that offer memory cafes on a rotating basis including:
- Lake Country Libraries Memory Project: Delafield, Hartland, Pewaukee, Oconomowoc, and Town Hall/North Lake.
- Four Points Library Memory Project: Muskego, New Berlin, Franklin, and Hales Corners.
- Wild Plum Library Memory Project: Menomonee Falls, Brookfield, Elm Grove, and Germantown.
Registration is required for first-time attendees. Please call 800.272.3900 to register.
