Dementia Inclusive Library Service

eLearning
Webinar
Learn how to grow dementia-inclusive service in public libraries of all sizes, financial capacities, and community contexts.

Living well with a dementia diagnosis is possible. With the rate of diagnoses increasing dramatically across the country,reducing stigma, addressing myth and misinformation, and supporting individual purpose and ongoing participation is the work of all of us. The public library, a community gathering and learning place that serves people at all stages of life, can play a vital role in this effort by understanding better what dementia is (and what it isn’t) and how flexible, responsive strategies for communication and service can ensure an abundant life for all.

The Dementia Inclusive Public Library Guide, a new, free resource from the Ohio Council for Cognitive Health, provides a roadmap for public libraries to lead, and to unite with, community allies in the reshaping of the dementia narrative. Written for public libraries of all staff and facility sizes, financial capacities, and community contexts, the Guide provides practical tools for everything from staff development to resource-building (including the Guide’s unique Memory Activity Kits) to environmental considerations to volunteer recruitment. In this webinar, learn how the Guide can help you and your library be a social action catalyst for this critically important change.
