Join us for Scotland’s Reading Moment 2022!

Take a few moments this Wednesday to keep the heid and read! ​​​​

To celebrate the power of reading, libraries and good mental health, you are being asked to pledge SIX minutes on Wednesday 11 May 2022 and devote it to reading.

Why? Because taking some time for yourself to relax and do things you enjoy like reading is important to help look after your mental health and wellbeing.

It has been scientifically proven that reading for just SIX minutes a day boosts your mental health by 68% (Keep the heid)

Library staff from across Scotland’s Colleges have suggested their own mood-boosting reads.  Why not drop by your campus library and find yours?  We will have tea, coffee and biscuits as well as selections of books for you to browse and dip into.  Enter our prize draw and find out more about our book club, A Book and a Blether.   Drop by from 10.30 onwards ​😊

If you can’t drop by, you can still take the pledge​ to #KeepTheHeidAndRead
