We’ve recently added a whole host of new print resources to library stock, including a number of books recommended for selection by library  members. Is there a book you would like to see added to library stock? Why not fill out a suggestion form when you’re next in the library? You can also submit a suggestion by emailing us.

You can find a list of the latest resources added to library stock here and as always, you can access our library catalogue online anytime.

As of January 2018 we no longer charge an overdue fine for late returns and due to popular demand we’ve increased the maximum total number of renewals allowed from 3 to 10 :).

Reminiscence resources

Pictures to share booksWe are continuing to work alongside our colleagues from the Dementia team to create our own reminiscence boxes, which staff would be able to loan to use with patients. We’ve previously blogged about this project and we will be sure to update you as we progress.

Towards the end of last year we added a selection of Pictures to Share books (pictured) to library stock. These books are specifically designed to be accessible and entertaining for those with mid to later stage dementia and are available for loan to staff to use with patients. The books have proved popular so far! Click here to find out more.

Reading for pleasure

We have recently added a small number of new fiction & poetry books to our reading for pleasure section – thank you to kind donations from our library members.fiction.PNG

If you’re looking for something quick to read on your lunch break, over the weekend or even on the bus home we have a selection of Quick Reads available for loan (these have been loaned to us for a short time from Wakefield Public Libraries). Click here to find out more about the titles available.
