Healthy reading

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.

More information can be found in our leaflet.
