Some Items in the Library of Things

Feb. 28, 2024

Everyone loves to try news things, but sometimes the money required can limit our experiences. Lac la Biche County Libraries have the answer. Patrons can now access non-traditional items through their library accounts. Our libraries have technology, baking pans, musical instruments, and so much more all available for free with your valid library card.

These collections are focused on resource sharing and sustainability. These collections are influenced by community members requests and needs. Our collection is constantly growing, and we are happy to add 3 new items:

Cognitive Care Kits

  • The kits help support those who have (or care for someone with) cognitive impairment from a disease such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, or Huntington’s. These kits include games, puzzles, books, and workbooks that encourage social connections. These resources provide stimulating brain activities for people experiencing cognitive decline, such as memory loss and thinking skills.
