iPod donations are needed! The “Music & Memory” program offered through Senior Services of Forsyth County is helping people with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. Donations of new or used iPods with chargers and earphones are needed for the participants to use.  The program taps into deep memories that are not lost to dementia and enables the participants “to feel like themselves again” in some cases, at least for a little while. **“Music & Memory” uses iPods with playlists compiled specifically for each participant, with music from when the individual was between the ages of 15 and 30. (Researchers believe those are the happiest years of a person’s life). Contact the Tab Williams Center at (336) 724-2155.   http://goo.gl/cs7N3o

Overdue! Someone recently returned two books that were checked out of the Portland State University library – 52 years ago?  A note read:  “’Borrowed’ these books (“Basic Principles of Speech” and Preface to Critical Reading”) about 1963 for my high school speech class. They have moved with me many times. It is now time for them (to) go back home. Outdated – yes – but I’ll let you decide their fate now.”  A stamp inside one of the volumes says it was last checked out Jan. 3, 1963. The books will NOT go back into “circulation.”  http://goo.gl/5O974a
