Our peaceful library is a popular spot for our residents; the perfect place to unwind while reading a book in a comfortable chair. We encourage all residents to read books on a regular basis. With a wide range of genres to choose from, from crime thrillers to romance novels, residents have a plethora of titles to select from.

Reading aloud or in a group setting allows residents to use their imaginations while also providing conversation subjects for fellow residents and even family members. Our library is the perfect place to unwind, whether members prefer to read alone in a cosy corner or play a card game quietly with a fellow resident.

More Than Just Reading

Reading can have a significant impact on people’s health, which is why we strongly encourage residents to visit our library. It has been shown that reading has the ability to boost mental health, communication skills and the ability to use one’s imagination. Reading is a must-have activity for decreasing stress, enhancing memory and even improving sleep habits. Our library is designed to offer more than just reading, but a whole host of health and mental well-being benefits.

Fully Stocked Shelves

Our library has been designed to appeal to as many residents as possible, by including popular classics such as ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ as well as more contemporary works. No matter what genre a resident prefers, our library shelves are guaranteed to contain something for them. Our book collection is updated on a regular basis, ensuring that even the most devoted bookworms will never be bored.

What You’ll Find In Our Library

Our warm and welcoming library is stocked with a wide variety of literature that residents can enjoy at any time of day. Our library is the go-to great area for some you-time, whether residents want to sit in a nice chair for the day or surf the web on an iPad.

Books, Magazines & Newspapers

In our library, residents are able to choose from a wide range of publications. Whatever they want to read, we are sure to have something for them; from magazines and newspapers to popular book series, our library is brimming with diverse reading material.

Table Top Games

Residents can also utilise our library to play a quiet card or board game alone, with a staff member, or with a visiting loved one. We encourage residents who visit our library to play the games we have available, which range from solitaire to chess.

Social Opportunities

Residents have the opportunity to join a book club to share their thoughts, comments and emotions about the plot of the chosen novel with their neighbours and feel a sense of community.
