Side View of Books


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.
