Lithgow Library Learning Centre announces the launch of the Tovertafel – Magic Table

The launch of this new resource will be held at the Library on Tuesday 2nd November 2021 at 10.30am.

 

Tovertafel uses a series of games that have been engineered to encourage instinctive participation, inviting engagement and boosting physical and social activity, prompting memories and conversation about everything from gardening to trips to the beach.

 

Tovertafel uses a projector and infrared sensors with a speaker and processor working together to project interactive light animations onto a table. These animations respond to hand and arm movements, allowing users to ‘play’ with the light. Moreover, the Tovertafel is a multigenerational activity; the games also facilitate residents, care workers and family members to play together – bringing many moments of happiness, laughter and joy for everyone.

 

“I am really pleased that, thanks to a grant from the Department of Communities & Justice, Lithgow Library e is able to offer this new generation in cognitive stimulation systems which aim to improve quality of life, primarily for those living with dementia,” said Mayor Ray Thompson.

To learn more about the Tovertafel, Lithgow Library Learning Centre will be holding a series of information & demonstration sessions on the following dates; bookings are essential and will be held in accordance with NSW Public Health Orders.
