Remembering the Past - 5 Mar 2015



People who plan or lead activities for seniors will be pleased to learn about an exciting, new resource at the Library—BiFolkal DVD sets. These multimedia kits are designed to spark memories and encourage conversation among older adults. In addition to a scripted slide show, capturing a specific time and place in history, each kit contains related stories, poems, and discussion questions. Most include an audio CD and a songbook with music and lyrics. Six sets, representing a variety of interests, are currently available:
  • Stars on the Home Front
  •  The Fifties Family Style
  •  Morning Chores
  •  In Agony and Ecstasy: Reflections on Fashion
  • Food
  •  You Oughta Have an Auto
Look for them on the second floor of the Library near the World Languages, or search the catalog for call number KIT 362.6.
