Next week is Libraries Week and High Life Highland will be running activities at libraries in our local communities across the length and breadth of the Highlands. Libraries Week runs from 3 to 9 October 2022 and is an annual showcase and celebration of the best that libraries have to offer.
High Life Highland Libraries have been given top marks by members and non-members alike as they turn to the Charity's online resources to help provide extra support for health and wellbeing during the Covid-19 outbreak. Feedback on the Library services in Highland, including online ‘Bookbug' sessions, e-books, audio-books and the online newspaper service has shown that people have quickly adapted to take advantage of the services on offer.
