Read, talk and share
Our libraries are working with the Reading Agency to use the proven power of reading to tackle loneliness and support mental health.
Bracknell Forest libraries will be joining in the scheme though events, services and activities.
We have a busy schedule of virtual events planned for February and March.
Book of the month
Lack of sleep is not just a matter of feeling tired. Recent research has shown that it is associated with serious illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.
The big question is, what can we do to get more sleep? Who can we turn to for a sympathetic and knowledgeable one-to-one consultation?
The answer is, to one of the world's leading sleep experts: Professor Chris Idzikowski, who here reveals his wisdom in a down-to-earth and reassuring way.
Children's book of the month
Felix is struggling at school. His ADHD makes it hard for him to concentrate and his grades are slipping. Everyone keeps telling him to try harder, but no one seems to understand just how hard he finds it. When Mum suggests Felix spends time with his grandfather, Felix can't think of anything worse. Granddad hasn't been the same since Grandma died. Plus he's always trying to teach Felix boring chess.
But sometimes the best lessons come in the most unexpected of places, and Granddad soon shows Felix that there's everything to play for.
