Memories can make you laugh and smile, reminiscing about the “old” days. Why not borrow a box full of magical objects and connect with times gone by.
Lancashire County Council’s Memory Box scheme has boxes available based on a theme and containing objects designed to unlock wonderful memories from the past.
The themes include –
- Home & Household
- Working Life/Textiles
- Entertainment & Going Out
WHY would I borrow a memory box?
- to help trigger the memories of someone you are caring for
- to encourage conversations on an individual or group basis
- to stimulate senses such as smell, hearing, touch
Anyone can borrow a memory box to enjoy good times with a friend, relative or someone you care for professionally.
Memory box loans are FREE of charge to Lancashire Library members and they are for a period of up to four weeks. Our memory boxes may be collected and returned to any Lancashire library by prior arrangement.
