Libraries on the Move

ANGUSalive Libraries are excited to bring to the community of Angus our Libraries on the Move project.

The new project aims to take the library service to the customer and will help demonstrate the important role libraries can play in people’s lives whilst helping combat inequality in our community.

The first session will be held on Friday 2 June at Westmuir Hall, Kirriemuir and is scheduled to take place twice a month across Angus.

The pop-up format will bring a multitude of resource to community space and will include book borrowing, author visits, Bookbug sessions and workshops from organisations including the NHS, Macmillan, Move More, Voluntary Action Angus, the Community Police service, the NHS and Angus Social Care Partnership.

We are delighted to launch this project which we know will play a valuable role in the community. It will give people who are more socially isolated and those who are geographically challenged to explore the wide range of services a library can provide. It will also offer the opportunity for people to upscale their digital skills and improve their health and wellbeing through a range of partnership sessions.

Our current Mobile Library Service visits a large area of the Angus community, and this is an opportunity for our rural communities to experience everything that a Library can offer to support members – not just reading, but health, wellbeing, digital access and more.
