The Northport-East Northport Public Library is proud to announce a partnership with Music and Memory. This personalized music therapy program—an iPod with customized playlist—is designed to enhance the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other degenerative neurological diseases. The program can help to relieve boredom, empower choice, enable memory, and provide avenues for genuine communication with family, friends, and caregivers through music-triggered memories.
How to Participate:
- Stop by the Adult Reference Desk in either building to obtain the Music and Memory application and Playlist Questionnaire. You may also download the application here.
- This program is available to Northport-East Northport Public Library cardholders only.
- A Reference Librarian will customize your playlist and load the music onto an iPod. The iPod will be checked out to your Northport-East Northport Public Library card.
- This is an ongoing program. You and the Reference Librarian will continue to work together to update your playlist.
