Reading group pilot to be launched in Rhyl

A reading group is being launched to help those living with dementia and their carers.

The Council and the North East Wales Carers Information Service (NEWCIS) are piloting the Read and Remember reading group at Rhyl Library and One Stop Shop.

The Library Services and NEWCIS will be holding the group sessions to encourage reading together, sharing memories and to meet new people in a relaxed atmosphere.

Other work being undertaken by the Library Service includes increasing the range of books of interest to carers, a housebound library service which brings books to people’s homes each month and clinically approved books to help people living with dementia, their families and carers understand the condition.

The reading group will be held on Wednesday, March 6 from 1.30pm at Rhyl Library and if successful more groups could be set up across the county.

For more information contact Rhyl Library on 01745 353814.
