New chapter for pop-up library

A ground-breaking scheme which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of East Dunbartonshire residents is moving to Hillhead Community Centre, in Kirkintilloch.

The pop-up health library provides health information and therapeutic book resources to community venues in areas that do not have their own libraries.

The scheme, the first of its kind in Scotland, allows people to borrow books and access health information, including information on sessions provided by local health practitioners. The project, which is funded by the Public Libraries Improvement Fund, was well-received at its first home in Twechar Healthy Living and Enterprise Centre. The Pop-up Health Library will be in Hillhead Community Centre until the end of October.
