The Healthy Ireland at Your Library service will take place across the library network nationwide. The programme will enhance current health information in public libraries by providing new book stock, e-books, e-audiobooks and e-magazines on health and wellbeing, a wider selection of health information for all users, and through a service delivered by trained library staff for this programme. Talks, discussions and workshops will be offered in library services with a focus on physical health, mental health and health literacy. 

Healthy Ireland at your Library looks to complement, support and expand existing programmes in public libraries and to provide reinforcement of the Healthy Ireland national framework throughout all communities and developing a locally cohesive, integrated and sustainable approach which is standard in all local authorities.

Offaly Libraries now have a full stock of Healthy Ireland Books available for you. For this full list of books with links to request them click here
