Aberdeen City Libraries has developed Healthy Reading collections with input from NHS Grampian professionals and local health care organisations. The collections consist of self-help, biographical and fiction titles in a variety of formats including e-books and e-audiobooks to support individuals, their friends and family and those with an interest in the subjects. You will find titles in a variety of formats including some e-books and e-audiobooks.
The collections cover a broad range of topics that is based upon feedback from library customers and NHS health statistics. We review the collections on a regular basis to ensure they are both current and meeting customer needs. In order to deliver a relevant health information service we provide the following opportunities for you to give us feedback and suggestions:
- Provide feedback about a book in the collection by filling out this survey online (paper copies available)
- General suggestions, comments, queries email us at Health Info
