Books on Prescription

Worcestershire is committed to helping and supporting customers in maintaining and improving their well-being in a number of ways. Books on Prescription are one of the ways we can do this.

  • Your GP or Health Professional can give you a prescription for a book which you can borrow from the library that they feel helps you or you could visit the library and borrow the books yourself.
  • All the Books on Prescription are available to borrow free of charge, without prescription, from our libraries.
  • All loans are confidential and staff will always deal with all customers with respect and will not share any information about your loan.

If you would like to check which libraries have a copy of a title you are interested in then simply have a look in the online catalogue (opens in a new window). If you're not a member it is free to join – either online or in person at any of our libraries.
