Healthy Ireland at Your Library
Healthy Ireland is a government-led national strategy to improve health and wellbeing in Ireland, placing a focus on prevention, individual awareness and keeping people healthy for longer.
Healthy Ireland at your Library
The Department of Health has seen the potential to work with Public Libraries across Ireland, to deliver the “Healthy Ireland at Your Library” programme which aims to establish libraries as a valuable source within the community for health information. The “Healthy Ireland at your Library” programme will address 6 key areas: Healthy Childhood, Healthy Eating and Active Living, Wellbeing and Mental Health, Positive Ageing, Alcohol and Tobacco.
The programme will enhance current health information in Fingal Libraries by providing a new book stock, e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines & online courses on health and wellbeing. The Healthy Ireland Book Stock and online resources will be complimented by a range of talks, discussions and workshops with a focus on physical health, mental health and health literacy.
