New memory café at Southway Library

A new memory café will launch at Southway Library on Thursday 11 January.

The café is open to anyone worried about their memory loss or someone else’s memory loss, those living with dementia and their carers.

The weekly session will provide support and information, activities including quizzes and puzzles and guest speakers. Refreshments are provided.

Councillor Glenn Jordan, Cabinet Member for Culture, said “We already have popular memory cafés at St Budeaux Library and the Central Library and we’re delighted to be adding another one for those who live in the north of the city. The recent refurbishment at Southway Library means it now has a meeting room that can be used for activities and groups such as these, extending the already wide range of services that the library offers.”

The new memory café at Southway Library will run on Thursdays from 10am to midday.

Memory cafés also run at the Central Library on Mondays and St Budeaux Library on Fridays, both from 10am to midday.

At Plympton Library a similar session, the Memory Conservatory, runs fortnightly on Mondays from 2pm to 4pm.
