Midnight Library aims to rekindle love of reading for Stratford charity

Stratford Editorial 14th May, 2021   0

A LIBRARY gift aimed to rekindle a love of reading among those working and supported by a wellbeing centre in Stratford.

The aptly named ‘Midnight Library’ was gifted to Stratford charity Lifeways – which provides low-cost spaces for counselling and therapies – from Warwickshire Libraries as part of ‘World Book Night’.

The bestseller, from renowned author Matt Haig, explores life choices and their potential impact through the character of Nora, who finds herself in the space between life and death. There she experiences an infinite library of books, each one telling the story of a potentially different life through which she discovers what makes life fulfilling.

The copies have all been passed to Lifeways therapists and visitors and the book is getting a positive response from readers who are sharing it on.

Lifeways manager James Pavitt: “We’ve had excellent feedback from having passed the books on to some of our regular therapists.

“One of our counsellors has already read it and loved it so much she wants to pass a copy on to one of her clients. The messages in the book are really valuable and match our aims of improving wellbeing and mental health.”
