A memory café is a social gathering for those who are experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and for their families, friends, or care partners.
Jefferson is part of the Glacial River Library Memory Project. Cafés rotate every month between Jefferson, Dwight Foster (Fort Atkinson), Irvin L. Young Memorial (Whitewater) and Powers Memorial (Palmyra) libraries.
The Library Memory Project is a partnership between public libraries in the Bridges Library System with a mission to provide programs to those affected by memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia. Libraries involved in the memory project offer memory cafés and educational programs on memory loss and brain health.
