Get reading, Get better, Get Libraries…


You are warmly invited to join us for a special event at Monmouth Library on Thursday 4th April 10-30am-3.30pm.

‘Get reading, Get better, Get Libraries, there is something for everyone in your local library’ aims to show case the great activities that are taking place in libraries to support well being, and for you to enjoy.

Macmillan has teamed up with local libraries, Leisure Centres and The National Exercise Referral Scheme to offer ‘taster’ sessions, ‘hands on’ activities and informative displays.

Watch the results of our recent digital story telling projects, or relax and enjoy a shared reading session, then find out about the latest innovation- telephone reading groups.

Browse the range of new books relating to cancer, discover the Macmillan cancer area or add a comment about the proposals for a teenage cancer zone.

Discover the bibliotherapy section designed to support mental well being, enjoy the great gardening books and meet the ‘Friends’ of Chepstow Library Reading Garden who will be pleased to tell you about the project to develop a Macmillan outdoor seating area.

There will be a special display by the knit and natter groups, showing how the wool gets from the sheep to the square, plus a display of all the things that have been made to support others.

At 12 noon there will be a ‘knit-a-thon’ to raise funds for Macmillan, so bring your needles and join in!

There is so much more to discover including a craft activity in the children’s area, the house bound book delivery service or take part in a tai chi ‘taster’ session and meet the exercise team.

Tea and coffee is available and there is free parking at Monmouth Comprehensive School, a few minutes from the library.

Please let me know if you are able to attend.

For more information or a timetable for the day, please do not hesitate to contact me.
