Bridges to the Community

The Pioneer Library System supports lifelong learning opportunities for all members of our communities. "Bridges to the Community" theme kits have been assembled to assist residential and day program staff in meeting the information and recreation needs of the individuals with whom they work. Although originally designed for people with developmental disabilities, many of these kits have been used successfully with older adults in nursing homes, adult day care facilities etc.

Bridges Kits may be borrowed for a two week loan period through your local public library from Outreach Services at the Pioneer Library System. Please contact Heidi Jensen, hjensen@pls-net.org or (585) 394-8260 to reserve a kit.
