Healthy Ireland

Healthy Ireland logoThe Healthy Ireland at Your Library service is a new national programme available across all public libraries in Ireland, including Longford's six branch libraries.  This service enhances current health information in our libraries by providing new book stock, e-books & e-audiobooks and e-magazines on health and well-being. It also provides a wider selection of health information for all users, through a service delivered by trained library staff. Talks, discussions and workshops will be offered in library services with a focus on physical health, mental health and health literacy.

The Healthy Ireland at Your Library service is a key element in ‘Healthy Ireland’, a Government-led initiative that is the national strategy to improve health and wellbeing, placing a focus on prevention, individual awareness and keeping people healthy for longer.
