This project was pioneered on the Island by the Mobile Library It involves getting together to chat about books, poems, photographs or artefacts that are supplied by the Library.

This is a friendly service offered to anyone who feels they will benefit from it. Usually it takes place at a location nearby with a group of people but it can also be done on a one to one basis.

Bibliotherapy

This service is an extension to our

Home Library Service and offers a
social activity to prevent isolation and
loneliness. It allows people to engage
with others to keep their mind active
whilst having friendly discussions
around the topics suggested by our
Librarians.

We have a vast collection of stock to
choose from so subjects will be
updated regularly and range from
historical periods in the Isle of Man,
to Childhood, Holidays, Hobbies, Pets,
Travel and many more.

It is not necessarily aimed at people
who read but those who have a
mutual interest around books and
photographs and enjoy talking and
listening.

 

If you think you may be interested in
joining one of these sessions or
becoming a member of the Home
Library Service please contact us to
discuss.
