Older people

If you can't visit the library

 We have a range of ways to help you access our services if you are unable to visit a library yourself: 

Reminiscence Collection

The collection includes posters, games and quizzes, postcards, printed and recorded music, jigsaws, photographs, talking tapes and books which can be used to stimulate and support reminiscence. Anyone can borrow items, but it is especially useful to those involved in the care of older people.
