Trust Libraries offer a wide range of information and support for staff wellbeing. Libraries at North Tyneside, Hexham, Wansbeck and The Northumbria are Covid-secure and remain open during the pandemic, providing free refreshments with biscuits kindly provided by the Charity Development Group.
Staff can direct you to self-help, literature, exercise and craft books to help you remain positive. A good book can give a real boost to the way you feel. Borrow a title from the Mood Boosting collection and see how your mood improves when you read it. If you can’t get to the library books can be posted.
Our monthly book club encourages everyone to read books that provoke debate, compassion and new ways of thinking. Ranging from clinical titles to popular fiction, all comments submitted about the book of the month will be entered into a prize draw. Look out on the staff FB page and the Library website for our next Book of the month.
