Due to social distancing and quarantines, many seniors are beginning to feel the effects of isolation.
We encourage you to participate in this remote program by making a card, drawing a picture or writing a letter to someone in our community residing at a senior living facility. This small act can make a big difference in the life of a local senior.
Place your cards in the mail addressed to any of the participating facilities listed in the chart below. Thank you!

We’re excited to announce the arrival of Billings Public Library CogKits.
These cognitive activity kits for adults with dementia and their caregivers are available in two levels: Early Stage and Middle/Late Stage.
Each kit includes a number of books, games and activities and may be placed on hold through the library catalog or by calling 657-8255.
