Reading Well

Reading and Well Being

All Knowsley libraries have a selection of books on health issues as well as self-help books, diet, fitness and healthy living. Ask at the desk in any library or check our online catalogue to find out more.

Books on Prescription

Books on Prescription is a national scheme which helps you to manage your well-being using self-help reading.  The scheme is endorsed by health professionals and supported by public libraries.

The scheme works by GPs or other health professionals recommending a self-help book as part of your treatment.  The books are also available for anyone to borrow from their local Knowsley Library.

Further details of the scheme can be found on the Reading Agency website:
