Georgia Lane, from Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging, explained. "This is a tool kit, with resources and meaningful activities for caregivers and people living with dementia."

Mayor Emily Larson was on hand, and shared what she thought of them. "It's really good for socializing, and making good connections, for people to tell a story, based on what they've experienced in the past."

She praised the library for their ongoing efforts to make Duluth dementia friendly. The library has done dementia training for their staff, and will be offering training for home delivery library volunteers in May. They also are offering other events. Here's a link to their website:
