7 Articulating public library role in community health and wellbeing “Evidence of a wide range and diversity of health and well being activity in libraries.Despite this level of activity, libraries are not, however, able to articulate their health and well-being contribution particularly well, to either partners or the public.” “The library health and well-being offer should be clearly defined. It should bring together core library activity e.g.health information and signposting; services to the housebound and visually impaired people; reading groups and creative bibliotherapy.” MLA 2010
