A Reading Refuge and Computer Center for Residents at Grancell Village
Located on the first floor of the Joyce Eisenberg Keefer-Medical Center (JEKMC), the Maxine Dunitz Family Learning Center is a place where residents are able to go to read books, use computers to play games or check email, and challenge their minds with cognitive fitness games and programs.
Maxine Dunitz, who donated the Dunitz Family Learning Center along with Max’s Beauty Salon and Gerald’s Deli (also located at JEKMC), recently made a generous donation to upgrade the Learning Center. New computers were purchased and installed along with a color printer for the residents’ use. Additionally, the Center has new artwork and many new books for the residents to enjoy.
Maxine and her grandson came out to visit the residents and tour the Center. “I am pleased to have helped enhance the Dunitz Family Learning Center,” said Maxine. “My hope is that residents will continue to benefit from reading, using the computers, and just having a place for solace.”Resident Sylvia Gladstein enjoys reading. She always looks forward to the new books that are added to the library. Sylvia thanks Maxine for her generosity and for donating so many large print books. “I am reading three books a week and the gift has given me so many more choices and so much enjoyment,” said Sylvia.
