This summer I visited the Health & Wellness section at West Vancouver Public Library. There are MANY resources there, too many to list, but everything the caregiver would want to know about caregiving, seniors health, and all kinds of related health issues such as diet, fitness, and relaxation. Many of the books are current. So check it out!
After you’ve selected material, why not go for a cup of tea in the library cafe or else sit in the peace and quiet of the Peter J. Peters Reading Room (adjacent to the Information desk on the Main floor, next to the piano). Of course, there are two comfortable armchairs in the Health & Wellness section itself, which is located on the Mezzanine level.
After my visit I talked to a librarian, who said the Health & Wellness section was started by a librarian who saw the need for such a resource. We are indeed fortunate to have it.

Hours: Mon-Th 10 am to 9pm; Fri 10 am to 6pm; Sat 10 am to 5pm; Sun (Sept-June) 10 am to 5pm.
