Aberdeen City Libraries launches new health information service to support wellbeing


Aberdeen City Libraries has launched Health Information Plus, a service to help people learn more about wellbeing.


Based within the Information Centre of Central Library but working across the city’s network of community libraries, Health Information Plus will direct customers to advice on everything from nutrition to exercise.


Councillor Jennifer Stewart, convener of the Public Protection Committee, said: “I am delighted to welcome the launch of the Health Information Plus service, which

will encourage residents everywhere to access reliable sources of new knowledge.


“By learning about the factors that influence our physical and mental health and sense of wellbeing, we are better placed to make positive lifestyle choices and feel in control of our lives”.

Customers will be able to access information in a variety of formats, including books, eBooks, audiobooks and online. 


The service will operate on a drop-in or an appointment basis, including virtual 1-2-1s. Inquiries can be submitted by email or by phoning 01224 652500.
