Personal reflection of colleague Jasmijn on the I improve learning week in Stockholm
When I started my job at the library in May 2019, the dementia project had already kicked off. And even though I wasn't involved at that moment, I loved to hear from my colleagues Matthias, Isabelle, Stan and Hans how the sessions were going. This valuable project, which later got the name Forgotten Orchestra, was a perfect example of how a public service and the library could contribute to an inclusive town.
