Memory Project


Library Memory Project logoThe Library Memory Project is a partnership between public libraries and the Alzheimer’s Association of Southeastern Wisconsin. We also partner with the Lakeshores 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 including:

  • Lake Country Memory Project: Delafield, Hartland, Pewaukee, Oconomowoc, and Town Hall/North Lake.
  • Wild Plum Memory Project: Menomonee Falls, Brookfield, Elm Grove, Sussex, and Germantown.
  • Purple Springs Memory Project: Mukwonago and Eagle.
  • Waukesha Memory Project: Waukesha.
  • Running Waters Memory Project: Lake Mills, Watertown, Waterloo.
  • Glacial River: Jefferson, Fort Atkinson, Whitewater, Palmyra.
