Whittlesey Library offers a wide range of services to support your health and wellbeing, including activities, information, free PCs and internet access, study space, books to borrow and online resources

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Reading helps us unwind and connect to the wider world. They have a wealth of physical and digital resources to help you read for pleasure, learning and research.
  • They can help you navigate and access good quality health information, and signpost you to further resources and services through our website and friendly staff.
  • Libraries connect you to your community through events, activities and volunteering opportunities.

“It’s an essential service. I cannot imagine my life without it. Both for the books and the social interaction. I’m unable to work due to disability and the library is something that keeps me sane.”

“It is a special place. I go there to unwind and relax and browse books. I go there to work and concentrate. I go there with my toddler to inspire her with the love of reading. The library has been a huge help to my mental health through the difficult times of early parenthood.”
