Reading Well For Children

Book collections now available free in libraries

Local libraries have recently launched the Reading Well For Children collections.

Cheshire West and Chester Libraries have, through this scheme, provided hundreds of new books recommended by experts to support children’s mental health and well-being. Developed by charity The Reading Agency in partnership with Libraries Connected and the UK public library network, Reading Well is a national books on prescription programme that provides helpful reading to support health and wellbeing.

The scheme is developed and endorsed by leading health partners and delivered in public libraries. As well as Reading Well, our libraries also have “books on prescription” collections of books for adult mental health, young people’s mental health, long term conditions and dementia.

Visit your local library for more information.
