Books, DVDs, and CDs are available on a variety of topics including brain health, symptom management, emotional health, family support, disease information, and more. 

How does the resource library work?

  • Our lending library is for those living in our chapter footprint in central and western NC who have Alzheimer's, their friends & families, and health professionals.  It is a free resource.
  • Up to two (2) items at a time may be checked out. Additional items listed on the order will need to be re-ordered upon the return of the first set of materials. 
  • All items are mailed based on availability. If the item(s) you requested is currently checked out by other members, we will keep you updated as they become available. If the item(s) is coming in shortly, we may hold your order so that we can ship it complete.
  • Items are loaned out for four (4) weeks. Please return items as soon as you are finished with them so others can enjoy them as well.
  • Each shipment will come with a postage-paid return envelope so items may be returned at no cost to you.

Grandfather's Story Cloth

Grandfather's Story Cloth

Grandfather's Story Cloth
Book by Yawg Daim Paj & Ntaub Dab Neeg

Chersheng's grandfather is beginning to forget things: little things like turning off the water faucet and big things like Chersheng's name.  Sometimes he even forgets that he is in America now.  Chersheng feels sad and helpless when he learns that Grandfather has Alzheimer's disease, but then his mother presents him with a story cloth stitched by Grandfather himself, embroidered in the Hmong tradition. Through the story cloth, Grandfather's memories of his life in Laos come alive.  And inspired by Grandfather's tales about his life before the war forced him to immigrate to America, Chersheng comes up with a plan to capture his family's new life with his own art project.  This way, they can all remember that their love is stronger than Alzheimer's disease, no matter which country they live in.

This heartwarming story addresses the increasing number of children who live with elderly grandparents with dememtia.
