North Clondalkin Library Pilot Project Set for Tallaght Hospital
As part of the Keep Well campaign, North Clondalkin Library, and in association with Tallaght Hospital, has announce a pilot lending initiative to patients and staff in the hospital.
The initial loan will consist of 30 playaways and 30 adult fiction books and will commence this month. Online resources will also be promoted, with particular emphasis on BorrowBox. BorrowBox is an app that allows library members borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks free from their library. The box of items was delivered by library staff on Monday 15 March to Tallaght Hospital. The resources were warmly welcomed by Danielle Anderson - Head of Patient Advice and Liaison Services TUH and her team. It is envisaged that the playaways will be used by patients in the Stroke Unit and also by older patients, who are likely to find them very easy to handle.
