Nora and Caroline love reading because it keep their minds keen and gives them a constant stream of conversation topics, but they find it difficult to visit a library.
Thanks to Friends, the Library can come to
them and others at 70+ senior residences.
“I no longer drive, so going to the library meant calling for a cab or taking a bus... So when the library started coming to me, I thought what a treat.”
- Nora Johnson, resident at Elim Shores apartments in Eden Prairie
Why it matters
Your gift will help deliver enriching resources and programming from our Library directly to homes and assisted living facilities where they enhance the quality of life and ensure that every member of our community has the opportunity to read, engage, and learn.
Seniors impacted by your gift through our Library's outreach programs are able to let their imaginations soar beyond their physical limitations.
Reading also provides a bridge to meaningful relationships through...
- Contact with a volunteer
- Discussion with family, neighbors, and staff
