Memory Screening
Thursday, April 19 - 10:00am | Room C


Registration is required please call (608)846-5482 or stop in to register.

A memory screen is a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in memory.

It creates a baseline so future changes can be monitored. Specialists from the Dane County Aging and Disability Resource Center will provide free 10-minute memory screenings. You can also get information about memory, memory clinics, brain health and local resources.

Playstation VR!
Thursday, April 19 - 5:00pm


Bring your friends and eyeballs to experience virtual reality. We will have a wide variety of games and environments to try out so we can see what this new technology is capable of.

Some include:

  • The Playroom VR - Almost like Super Mario, you collect the robots while moving through the virtual world.
  • Discovery - A simple version of Minecraft. Use the Move controller or the DualShock controller to build a world.
  • VRog - Become a frog and hop from lily pad to lily pad eating bugs.
  • Tiny Trax - Race tiny cars around different tracks.
  • Carnival Games VR - Play classic carnival games to earn tickets for prizes!

Don't miss your chance to get some hands on experience with PSVR.

Coloring for Adults
Monday, April 23 - 6:00pm | Room C


coloring

Coloring is an activity we think of as being for kids. However, it can be beneficial for adults.

Coloring helps us de-stress because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries. Coloring generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.

Coloring sheets and colored pencils will be provided. Adults only, please.

Golda Meir: The Journey Home Portrayed by Historical Impressionist, Jessica Michna
Tuesday, April 24 - 10:00am | DeForest Area Community & Senior Center


How does a girl born in the Ukraine, and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, travel a path that will lead her to become Prime Minister of Israel?

This informative, entertaining program, developed by Jessica Michna, explores that rather circuitous route. What roadblocks and detours were thrown in Golda's way and how did she overcome them? The journey is a fascinating one, filled with joy, sorrow, seriousness and humor. Let Golda, as portrayed by Ms. Michna, tell you in her own words.

Co-sponsored by the Library, the Center, and the DeForest Area Historical Society.

This program is part of the Library’s outreach programming. It is free and open to everyone in the community.


If you have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate, please contact library staff.
