Bye Bye the 20th!

The 20th January was Blue Monday – thankfully behind us now but supposedly the day of the year when the most people feel depressed! To support and cheer people who may be feeling a bit down we are having a campaign to create a Mood-boosting Top Twenty list of books chosen by the people of Brighton & Hove, we will then promote them in libraries.


The Mood Boosting display at Jubilee Library


Have you visited Jubilee Library to see our Mood-boosting display?

We also have more information about Mood-boosting here and a link to the Five Ways to improve your wellbeing and increase your emotional resilience.





Today’s recommendation is from Emma …

Name and role: Emma Marchant

Library Customer Services Manager.

 What makes you happy?

Swimming, watching Gogglebox and eating crisps.

 What do you recommend and why?

Anything by PG Wodehouse because of the innocent humour and laughing at the outrageous antics of ‘toffs’!
