NEW! Our eMagazine provider has changed to Libby!

Important update for eMagazine readers. Cavan Library Service has changed its eMagazine provider from RBDigital to Libby. The new service with Libby offers free access to thousands of eMagazines for library members to enjoy. Download the Libby app from the App Store or Google Play where the changeover will be very simple - just have your Cavan library card number and PIN to hand to sign in. Or you can access Libby online with Cavan Library Service here on our website! Note: Access to RBDigital will cease by the end on April... so make the change!

MIND YOURSELF READING GUIDE

The ‘Mind Yourself’ reading guide contains reviews and recommendations of over 400 books for children and young people from birth to age eighteen and is designed as a ‘first-aid kit’ for worries, sadness, loneliness, anxiety and any number of feelings that a young person may want to explore during these anxious times of COVID 19!

The guide contains mental health and wellbeing information from Jigsaw and ISPCC Childline, including tips and coping strategies for young people and advice for adults on supporting children to build resilience.

The guide is available free of charge at your local library, and may be picked up free of charge when libraries re-open. In the meantime it may be downloaded HERE

Take a look at the CBI BOOKS MAKE THINGS BETTER guide too!
