Library & IT Suite

Our tranquil libraries are a favourite space for our residents; it’s the ideal spot to unwind while reading a book in a cosy chair. We invite all residents to take advantage of this serene environment as regularly as possible. Residents have a profusion of genres to pick from, ranging from crime thrillers to romantic books.

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 libraries are 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.

The Benefits of Reading

We encourage our residents to visit our library regularly; reading can have a big impact on people’s health and it has been demonstrated to improve mental health, communication skills and ability to improve imagination. Reading is an important exercise for reducing stress, increasing memory and even improving sleep patterns. Our library is designed to provide a variety of physiological and mental well-being benefits.

Whatever genre a resident prefers, our library shelves will almost certainly have something for them. Our book collection is constantly updated, ensuring that even the most ardent bookworms will never be bored. Our Activity Coordinators also ensure the library offers large print books to make this activity as accessible as possible.
