Health and wellbeing @ your library


If you want information to help with your physical and mental health and general wellbeing, then maybe your local library has the answers.

Drop by and see what’s on the shelves. There is a huge variety of books, CDs, DVDs and e-books you can borrow. Other services include:

  • Reading self-help books, pamphlets and information on support groups;
  • Having access to a free Internet service;
  • Joining up with others for family activities and reading groups.
