A New Year, A New You!
Typically in January we may consider resolutions such as learning a new skill or other forms of self-improvement. Here is where the library can help! The library is a vast store of information – we can direct you to resources that inform and enlighten. If you plan to study, the library can provide help for those who are beginning or returning to study. Why not check out the range of resources and services available? View our:

If you are considering a new approach, we have a good selection of mood-boosting books and self-help literature. Mindfulness is one such area and we have a good selection of books on this topic that are available for loan today.
“Mindfulness is a practice that individuals and groups can do on a day-to-day basis. It can enable people to change the way they think and feel about their experiences, especially stressful experiences. As a mind-body approach, it can increase our ability to manage difficult situations and make wise choices” (http://bemindful.co.uk/ accessed 06/01/2017).
