Join us for an hour of sharing our stories with a tuneful lilt. Some stories are so great that they have to be sung. These “story songs” may inspire us, take us on adventures, celebrate a moment or share something silly and unlikely.

This workshop has been designed and will be facilitated for individuals living with memory loss and their care partners. We welcome other family members and friends of all ages to join us.

Supplies needed: rhythm shakers, maracas, or a bag of beans to make noise.

We can provide accommodations for people with disabilities at Library events. Please contact leap@spl.org at least seven days before the event to request accommodations. Captions are available for all recorded Library programs.
