We're focusing this month on some of the excellent children's books we have available from our eBook and eAudiobook collections, which are great choices to share with your family.
Throughout June, we're holding a special #bookaday challenge over on the Derbyshire Libraries Twitter feed. We'll be asking you a different question about books every day, and we'd love for to join in and share our challenge!
From the 15th to the 21st of June it is Men’s Health Week. This is a period used to highlight particular issues that affect men’s health specifically and also more generally and to try and both highlight and offer advice, support and encouragement for men in dealing and coping with these. One of these areas in particular over the last couple of years has been mental health.
We’re counting down to Empathy Day on June 9, celebrating how reading helps us all to understand other people better. The more we empathise with the great characters we read about, the more we understand how others think and feel.
A lot of us are taking our daily exercise close to home and walking/running/cycling familiar routes and we’re asking you to photograph and share the local history that surrounds you. Have you spotted something that you’ve never noticed before? An old building, mile stone, building plaque or something else?
Hi-Vis Fortnight runs from 1-14 June and celebrates alterative formats and accessible library services for all. Derbyshire Libraries supports and provides services for visually and print impaired customers and our eaudio offer from RBDigital is just one great example of this.
We hope you have all been enjoying our online story & rhymetimes on Facebook and
Whilst we unfortunately continue to remain closed due to the current pandemic, we are continuing to provide you with as much of the service as we possibly can.
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the screen/scenes? Throughout June we will be featuring our staff that have been part of the #LibrariesFromHome team. They are just stopping by and saying hello and are highlighting what they like to do and read and what they have been working on, from eBook reviews, cookery demonstrations to staying in touch with our home library service customers.
