Library culture is all about making connections

As a Librarian, you are tasked with facilitating social and educational programs at the library, and on-site activities at schools, senior centers, and organizations. Library culture is all about making a connection. It’s about fostering learning and wellbeing. Relish has become a trusted partner for community libraries and librarians providing resources and information around Alzheimer’s and dementia.

 

Dementia-friendly programs start with Relish

As the recognized leader in puzzles, crafts, games, and sensory and reminiscence activities for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, our activities are commonly found in libraries. With the need for special interest toolkits and samples for families, and curated activities and wellbeing resources for running programs such as “Memory cafes,” libraries trust Relish to provide the materials needed to be a hub for their community.
