The SLC Program brings discussions and hands-on activities about the Stanley’s collections to organizations serving older adults in Cedar, Iowa, Johnson, and Linn counties. 

Working with staff from older adult living communities and community centers, the SLC program coordinator creates programming and activities designed for residents and program participants. Presentations feature a combination of audiovisual demonstrations, objects, and hands-on activities. 

The SLC program coordinator adapts presentations and activities to all skill levels, in addition to accommodating the physical and mental needs of participants.  

This service is provided free of charge to older adult living communities and other public venues that serve older adults. For more information, please contact Amanda Lensing at: amanda-lensing@uiowa.edu or 319-467-0074.

Funding for the 2019-2020 SLC program is provided by the Community Foundation of Johnson County through 5224Good.

Funding for 2020–2021 SLC virtual programming is provided by the Community Foundation of Johnson County through the Coldren Endowment Fund.
