NHS staff take over story time across Bristol

Bristol library story time sessions will host a takeover by NHS staff during Libraries Week (8-13 October).

Instead of reading temperatures, nurses, doctors, and a host of other medical staff will be wowing young audiences with stories about health.

Libraries Week is the annual showcase of the best that UK libraries have to offer, and this year the theme is ‘Wellbeing’. In libraries across Bristol, NHS staff wearing their uniforms will be reading books and stories to pre-school children.

Kate Murray, Head of Libraries said “We are delighted to be working with NHS partners to bring medical professionals into our very popular story time sessions. We think this is a great way for children to learn about hospitals and visiting the doctor in a fun way. We also have a wealth of information to help reassure children, their parents and carers about health and wellbeing.”

Story times for pre-school children take place in every library across the city. Bristol libraries can also offer books and resources for people seeking support and information about mental health and wellbeing.
