Time to Reminisce

T.B. Scott Free Library was approached by members of the Merrill Auxiliary to be considered for the Golden Eagle Fund Grant in 2018. The purpose of the grant: To provide financial assistance for the development of community-oriented programs for the elderly. The Library took this opportunity to develop memory kits for circulation to Merrill area residents and was awarded the Grant. The development of eight kits was a yearlong process and are now available for checkout to Merrill area assisted living facilities and residents. Each kit has a theme with suggested activities.
