Dementia/Library Services Preconference Workshop at ALA

  • 1.  Dementia/Library Services Preconference Workshop at ALA

    Posted Mar 22, 2023 12:16 PM

    Are you going to ALA 2023? Please check out, and register for, this RUSA- and ODLOS-sponsored pre-conference workshop on public library service to people living with dementia. <o:p></o:p>

    People living with dementia, along with their friends, family members, and caregivers, are already using your library. The question is not will you serve this community, but will you serve it well. Does your staff understand the behaviors they encounter? Are they welcoming to this vulnerable group? Do they feel empowered to provide services and programs that improve quality of life? This interactive workshop will help empower you to build a dementia-friendly library! <o:p></o:p>
