 BRAIN GAMES

 

 

MANAHAWKIN –   The Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library is presenting the program “Brain Games” on Wednesday, June 2nd from 1:00-2:30 PM.  Keeping your mind active improves its performance. Your brain responds to intellectual stimulation by being fit and in good condition.  Older adults consistently express their fears about decreasing mental ability such as loss of memory, difficulty in concentrating, inability to adapt to new situations, etc.  Just as you do physical exercises to keep your body in shape, doing mental exercises stimulates different parts of your brain and helps retain mental acuity. We’ll provide the brain games and the fun!

The Stafford branch is located at 129 N. Main St. in Manahawkin. This program is geared toward adults and is free and open to the public. Please register either in person, by calling: (609) 597-3381, or by visiting our website at www.theoceancountylibrary.org
