UK: Speaking Volumes: the Impact of Public Libraries on Wellbeing

Source: Carnegie UK Trust

The Carnegie UK Trust was set up to promote the wellbeing of the people of the UK and Ireland, and we believe that public libraries have enormous potential to improve wellbeing in four broad areas of public policy: social, economic, cultural and education.

Our analysis of wellbeing shows that there are a number of so-called ‘domains of wellbeing’ which can be measured or monitored to explore the overall levels of individual wellbeing. Many countries use different sets of domains to measure wellbeing, but there is a huge amount of overlap...

We have grouped the examples into four areas of public policy, showing the potential which exists for public libraries to really make a difference to the wellbeing of their communities.
