Book Buddies in Wayne

Calling all book lovers! Are you looking for the perfect opportunity to combine your love of literature with a way to give back? Read along with some seniors with Book Buddies in Wayne. It's a great opportunity to socialize with some lovely seniors and do good--all at once. 

The seniors in this wing of a long-term care facility have Alzheimer's disease, and reading aloud to them helps stimulate and socialize them. Sign up today! This project is BYOB--your own book, that is. The ideal book is short and visual.
