“ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION GREEN-FIELD LIBRARY” PROGRAM
The "Alzheimer's Association Green-Field Libray" Program can be accessed for Alzheimer's resources in the Chicago area or virtually from anywhere on-line through the internet.
Chapters of the "Alzheimer's Association" are also located throughout the United States and many offices have resource libraries with their own Alzheimer's resources collections.
*Some local community libraries are a part of the interlibrary loan program and it is possible to borrow from the "Green-Field Library" this way. If your local library does not have the Alzheimer's resource that you need, then they can borrow Alzheimer's books or videos from the Green-Field Library and get them to you.
