Earlier this year, East Central Regional Library introduced 18 Brain Fitness Kits to the ECRL collection with funding from the Cambridge ACT on Alzheimer’s group. Studies have shown a direct link between playing games and retaining brain functions. Each Brain Fitness Kit contains 4 games that help keep or build brain power. The kits were created with this purpose, but all ages will enjoy the games. Since March 2016, the Kits have been checked out more than 175 times!
Recognizing their popularity and value in stimulating and engaging the brain, the Chisago Lakes Friends of the Library wanted to contribute. The Chisago Lakes Area Library, a branch of East Central Regional Library, has received funds from the Chisago Lakes Friends of the Library to purchase 6 new Brain Fitness Kits, to add to East Central Regional Library’s collection. Kits #19-24 are available now. See the new games in the guide below!
