The gatherings, to be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., are free and open to all older adults with or without current memory concerns.
Clayton Library manager Geneva Moss said this program offering for its participants will concentrate on activities that focus on memories to remember the early times in their lives while also boosting memories going forward.
Attendees must be accompanied by a caregiver or loved one for the duration of the Memory Café if assistance or supervision is required. The Clayton Library is not responsible for Memory Café attendees.
A small snack will be provided. So, attendees with a food allergy or restriction are asked to contact the library at least 24 hours prior to the event.
This program is being made possible by the Clayton Community Library Foundation and a grant from the Livable Community Trust Fund.
“Without it, we would not be able to do it,” said Moss in lauding the foundation’s work to make this new library offering available to the community.
