Active Life Active Mind is an annual programme of library events focused on health and wellbeing. We're pleased to announce that the programme will run throughout January (2019) in all of our 50 libraries. This will be the sixth year for the popular health and wellbeing programme with over 200 events being held.

Active Life Active Mind aims to bring people together and promote healthy lifestyles and positive wellbeing. Events and activities in libraries range from yoga and knitting groups to walking for health, Lego and colouring clubs. There's something to suit a whole range of age groups.

Through the Active Life Active Mind programme of events, we work with a partner organisations such including Age UK, The Stroke Association, Prostate Cancer UK, and the RNIB to ensure we are providing professional advice and support to our library users.
