Library Trip

Guysfield residential home went on their monthly trip, this time we visited the local library in Letchworth, which was a great success.

We were warmly welcomed by ever so kind staff working at the library who organised for us fun and interesting activities .One of them was poetry read aloud and we all joined in with reciting. We also talked about the library, books, Letchworth town and how it has changed over the years. We were provided with pictures and books on Letchworth and Hertfordshire area and that became the basis for our conversation and reminiscing. One of our residents was able to see her father’s diary shop in one of the books which she was really proudly talking about and how then she became an owner.

All residents and relatives were reminiscing and sharing their experiences while having a cup of tea and biscuits. We had a tour of the library and residents were assisted in choosing the books to take on loan. Some of them were talking books and some with a larger print.

We had finished the visit with singalong and more poetry read aloud chosen by the residents. We were also invited to future events held by the library. The residents and relatives expressed how much they enjoyed the trip. One of the residents commented

“It was a lovely break from the daily routine, it lifted my spirit”
