A popular spot with our residents is our tranquil library. This space allows residents to relax and read a book in a comfortable chair. We encourage all residents to take advantage of reading books regularly; from crime thrillers to romantic novels, there is an abundance of choice to be enjoyed by all.

Reading alone or in a group setting helps residents to engage their imaginations and provides topics of conversation for fellow residents and even their family to be a part of. Whether residents want to read alone in a cosy corner or enjoy a card game quietly with a fellow resident, our library is the ideal space to unwind.

A Plethora of Health Benefits

Reading can make a great difference to people’s health, therefore we highly encourage it. It is known to improve mental health, communication skills and encourage individuals to use their imagination. From reducing stress, to improving memory and even improving sleep patterns, reading is a must-have hobby. Simply reading for pleasure will greatly improve the mood of our residents and so our library will continue to be an inviting space.

Something For All Interests

Our library strives to appeal to as many residents as possible by offering favoured classics like ‘Pride and Prejudice’ as well as more modern literature. No matter a resident’s choice of genre, our library shelves are sure to have a book for everyone to delve into. The library’s book collection is also updated on a regular basis which ensures that even the home’s bookworms will always find something new to enjoy.
