Many People Living with Dementia Can Still Enjoy Books and Reading!

January 19, 2024 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm


People living with dementia often feel stigmatized and one common misconception is that they can no longer read or benefit from library print materials. While those living with dementia may be reading in a different way and for different purposes, research shows that there are still valuable and important benefits from offering them literacy opportunities. Literacy activities can include reading out loud, browsing through selected non-fiction books, singing using printed lyrics, and choral reading of poetry. Find out more about the Tales & Travel book and reading program that incorporates these engaging cognitive activities that also stimulate memories and conversation.
