Assisted Living and Extended Care Facilities

We offer these same services to people who reside in assisted living residences or in limited and extended care facilities. The Outreach Services Librarian also works with activity directors and therapists to provide materials that will assist them with their programming for residents.

What Materials are Available?

We have books, magazines, and large print materials, both fiction and non-fiction. Books on cassette and CD, where the book is narrated and played on a standard cassette or CD player. And current entertainment music and videos as well as musicals and classics! We also have Bi-Folkal Kits that contain audiovisual materials on many different topics including holidays and vintage classics.
