Boston Library is holding a week of special events during October 8-13 to celebrate Libraries Week.
Libraries Week is the annual showcase of the best that UK libraries of all kinds have to offer. In 2018, with a focus on wellbeing, libraries across Lincolnshire will showcase how they bring communities together, combat loneliness, provide a space for reading and creativity, and help people of all ages with their mental health and wellbeing.
As detailed below, the team at Boston Library have a range of activities with a wellbeing focus for adults and children planned including Tai Chi, lunchtime Armchair yoga and mindfulness, Coop Pharmacy Health Check and a visit from staff from Wellbeing Lincs. There is also of course the chance to choose from our wide ranging collections of books which include titles from the national Books on Prescription and Shelf Help schemes.
Alison Wade, Library Manager at Boston Library for GLL said:
