Let's get walking! There are so many benefits of walking for our mental health and our bodies. It can increase our cardiovascular and pulmonary system (heart and lungs), increase muscle strength, reduce body fat, help us to lose weight and many more other benefits. We can implement walking so easily into out daily routine. Take the stairs instead of the lift, walk to the shop instead of driving, walk during your lunch break, meet up with friends in the park. The list of ideas is endless and it only takes 30 minutes of brisk walking a day to make a huge difference on our health and state of mind. Being outside gives us more energy and make us happy, especially on a sunny day. 

Please check the website below, our resources about walking and places to go for a walk. 

There is also the NHS website Walking for Heath which tells you more about benefits of walking

The National Gardening week is run by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to raise awareness of gardening and horticulture. It aims to encourage people to get active outdoors with friends and family. Nature can have a huge impact on our mental health and wellbeing.

“Plants and gardens have the power to uplift us and that's why we urged everyone to get involved in National Gardening Week this year, in whatever way they could. It's more important than ever that we savour the beauty of flowers and trees because gardens are a natural tonic.” Alan Titchmarsh

Please check the website below and a few examples of our library resources.

" May the Fourth be with You" 

It all started with the book 'Dune' by Frank Herbert. It was first published in 1965 and become the base inspiration for Star Wars. The first movie was produced by George Lucas in 1977 and was a great success. The number of fans has been growing ever since. Even today, over 40 years later Star Wars remains one of the most successful movies of all the time.  The 4th of May brings people together from all over the world, no matter what background they are from to celebrate and enjoy the day. There are events organised all over the world. 

Please check the website below and a few examples of our Star Wars library resources.                                     




Mental health awareness week is an acknowledgment that our well-being has as much importance as our physical health. Many unresolved mental health issues can lead to physical problems. This awareness week is here to help you recognise your mental needs, to recognise what makes you happy and to help you find the way to achieve life stability and balance within yourself.

The official theme for this year, as set by the Mental Health Foundation, is ‘anxiety’. The ‘Just’ Anxiety?’ campaign aims to help people and organisations to understand the difference between anxiety and anxiety disorders and to confidently seek and signpost each other to the right support.

We also recommend some of our library resources. Please come and speak with us and we will help you find some more.
