St. George’s Honesty Library Returns

The Honesty Library is back!

What’s the Honesty Library all about?

A cosy corner filled with books waiting to be discovered and cherished. Literature lovers can donate a book and take one in return. It’s a simple yet powerful act of spreading joy and knowledge one page at a time. 

Throughout May, we invite you to be a part of this heartwarming initiative. Whether you have a favourite novel you’re ready to pass along or you’re eager to explore new books, our Honesty Library welcomes all. Your donation not only enriches someone else’s reading journey but also supports the incredible work of St Luke’s Hospice. Every book exchanged is a contribution towards providing care and comfort to those in need.

What is Mental Health Awareness Week?

Mental Health Awareness Week happens every year, and it’s the biggest opportunity for the whole of the UK to come together to focus on getting good mental health. The week aims to tackle stigma and help people understand and prioritise their and others’ mental health.

It has evolved to focus on preventing mental health problems and has become one of the most high-profile public campaigns in the UK.

How can reading improve your mental health?

Reading can help improve your quality of sleep and stress levels, and promote mental fitness. 

Whether you’re dropping off a book or picking one up, share your experience on social media using the hashtag #StGeorgesHonestyLibrary. 

Harrow Libraries

This summer, Harrow Libraries is bringing back it’s Summer Reading Challenge. They have kindly donated 100 books to our May Honesty Library for the Harrow Community to enjoy, including titles from a series called ‘Beyond Words’, designed for adults who find pictures easier to understand than words. Some of topics featured in these titles lend themselves to themes relating to Mental Health Awareness Week such as seeking help for depression, coping with caring for a family member with dementia and keeping fit and active. 

Thank you to Harrow Libraries for their kind donation and make sure you get involved with their Marvellous Makers Summer Reading Challenge when it launches on 6th July!
