As part of a major refurbishment in early 2015, Sandal Library was redesigned in consultation with The Alzheimer's Society, becoming the districts first fully dementia friendly library. 

The layout includes subtle design features which are specifically incorporated to make it easier for people living with dementia to use.

The download section on this page has more information on the features we integrated into the design.

We are proud to offer Tovertafel, a magic table stimulating both physical and emotional activity encouraging social interaction that creates moments of happiness for people living with dementia.
