Your wellbeing! #LoveLibraries… …better than chocolate!

Another batch of tasty bookmark designs for local libraries – feel good without the guilt!


“A significant association was also found between frequent library use and reported wellbeing.” So says the DCMS study; Quantifying and Valuing the Wellbeing Impacts of Culture and Sport.

It found that you’re better off visiting the library than going to the gym!

Reading’s good for you.

Ranking different leisure activities and their ’worth’ to the people who take part in them, it finds that going to the library is beneficially valued at £1,359/year! It finds fitness activities, such as going to the gym, are actually associated with people being unhappier than they would otherwise be!?
