Understanding Alzheimer’s & Dementia

We recently hosted a talk by the Alzheimer’s Association Cleveland Area Chapter that provides the basic information that everyone needs to know about memory-loss issues.

It uses video interviews with professionals, patients with dementia, and caregivers to discuss real-life issues

By the way, we’ve hosted other programs that can help families dealing with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. They are still available to watch on our YouTube channel.

Help these kittens find their fur-ever home

By |2021-06-27T06:00:08-04:00June 27, 2021|

Find your new furry family member during our Kitty Adoption Event on Saturday, July 10.

People can get a lot of cool things from the library, but you probably didn’t know that you could get a kitten here. And these fantastic felines aren’t for borrowing. They’re looking for their furever home.

We’ve teamed with Lake Humane Society to host a kitty adoption event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 10, at our Lake Branch. Several adorable kittens will be available for adoption. We’ll also have fun cat-themed games and activities for the kids.

No registration is required to come to our kitty adoption event. Hopefully, we’ll see you there!
