People dealing with dementia can share their experiences, tips, and advice at an event at Gainsborough library tomorrow (Thursday 27th March).

The event is taking place from 10am – 1pm and will allow people to share valuable insights in a safe, casual and friendly environment.

Tarina Jones, Inclusion Services Coordinator with Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Just like in a real library, a visitor to the human library can choose a book from a range of titles, the difference is that the books are people, and reading is a conversation.”

“The council’s human library enables groups to break stereotypes using positivity and humour.”

“The conversation at Gainsborough library this week aims to help people from many different backgrounds share their experiences on coping with dementia.”
