Your summer reading starts here with our new leisure collection

Off on holiday and need a read for the beach? Having your own summer reading challenge? Simply love books?

Last year the Library was successful in a bid to Greenheart to establish a leisure reading collection for staff and thanks to their generosity the collection is now available for staff to enjoy.

You may remember we were asking for ideas for titles and authors to buy for our new leisure collection. We took on your recommendations and ordered almost everything we could from the list of suggestions you kindly gave us. Then we added a few extra titles we thought you might enjoy with all the library staff recommending at least one book they have read and loved.

We now have a great collection of books available at all three of our libraries. Our leisure reading collections encompasses a really wide range of genres, topics, cultures and interests. From literary fiction, family sagas, and sci-fi, to cookery, interior design, biographies and gardening, we hope there is something for everyone.

You can find all of our leisure collection on the library catalogue or you can do it the old fashioned way and pop into the library to browse what is on the shelves...

With good evidence that reading for pleasure improves well being and empathy, and no fines on late books, we hope the library might be your first stop when planning your next read...
