Reading Well: Books on Prescription

Reading Well is a national scheme delivered by the Reading Agency and supported by public libraries. The scheme includes a number of reading lists endorsed by health professionals and the titles are available to borrow from our libraries.

Anyone can drop in to one of our libraries and borrow these titles - you do not need a prescription and the books are alongside the health collections in each library so they are easy to find. Don't forget we have self issue machines in our libraries so it's really easy to borrow and return the books in confidence.

The collections are:

  • Common mental health conditions
  • Dementia
  • Young people‚Äôs mental health
  • Long term (physical) conditions

Details of the titles in each collection can be found on the Reading Well website.
