Dementia Friends Information Sessions will enable you to learn more about what it’s like to live with dementia and turn that understanding into action. Anyone can become a Dementia Friend to learn more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about Dementia Friends to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts. Sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions, who are trained and supported by Alzheimer’s Society. Each Information Session lasts around one hour. 

If you would like further information or would like to book on any of the events please contact Emma McInnes on 01642 278756 or emma_mcinnes@middlesbrough.gov.uk or Brain Rowcroft on 01642 61 11 10 or browcroft@clevearc.com

Central Library

The Central Public Library was officially opened in 1912 by Alderman Amos Hinton. Built on two plots of land, one donated by Sir Hugh Bell, the other by Alderman Amos Hinton, the foundation stone was laid in 1910 and the building, sometimes known as the Carnegie Library, was officially opened on May 8, 1912. Featuring a classical design selected from 203 submissions, its architects were Messrs. S. B. Russell and T. E. Cooper, of Gray's Inn Square, London.

In its original form, it provided a lending library where boys' and girls' sections were separated by a screen, a ladies' reading room, a central news room with a separate entrance in Grange Road, and on the first floor were the law and patent and reference libraries. This was Middlesbrough's first purpose-built premises to house its public library.
