A reminder that Nuneaton Campus Library is open all summer!
In support of Mental Health Awareness Week, the Libraries at Nuneaton, Hinckley & Wigston have displays of useful resources such as books, e-books and DVDs as well as really helpful printable downloads offering advice on subjects such as stress, healthy diets, family, exercise, drinking and mindfulness.
You can have a read for yourself at: www.mentalhealth.org.uk/publications
In addition, there is an iPad at Nuneaton with the ‘Stop, Breathe & Think’ app downloaded on it so you can try it out for yourself!
More info can be found at: www.stopbreathethink.com
An extra-special big ‘Thank You’ to our work experience learner, Molly who co-designed our Hinckley display, really well done, we’re impressed!
Please note that due to a team meeting, Nuneaton Campus Library will be closed between 8:45am-1pm on Monday 8 January (Staff Development Day)
World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 20th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 2nd March 2017 children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
Thanks to the generosity of National Book Tokens Ltd, publishers and booksellers, we have received £1 book vouchers that we can offer to children and young people who can then take their voucher to a local bookseller and can use it to pick one of TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book or audio book costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop or book club (terms and conditions apply).
