Did you know that according to a report from the National Academy of Science it has been shown that elderly people who read are 2.5 times less likely to develop Alzheimer’s? The study, though, does say subjects who displayed decreased mental activity might have already been developing Alzheimer’s. While reading alone cannot prevent Alzheimer’s, why not pick up a book and hedge your bet? Speaking of memory — Do not forget the Valentine’s Contest at the Library. The contest ends on the 8th and the winner will be drawn at approximately 3PM. So hurry in to get a book to read and help prevent Alzheimer’s and enter the contest.
