Library Renaming Event – 28th June

Following the refurbishment of the Library last year we are holding a Renaming Event at the LANTERN Centre on 28th June to celebrate the re-opening and the renaming of the Library.  The Library is being renamed ‘The Gosall Library’ in memory of Dr Gurpal Gosall.  The Library will be officially renamed by Heather Tierney Moore and refreshments will be served.  All LCFT staff and students on placement are invited and we hope you will join us for this celebration.

World Health Day competition

Lancashire Care Library and Information Service, April 2017

Depression is a major challenge to health in the WHO European Region and is the focus of World Health Day 2017. The theme “Depression: let’s talk” recognizes that depression is a treatable condition and seeks to address the fact that, despite this, about 50% of cases of major depression still go untreated. To promote talking about depression the Library is running a competition for LCFT staff and students to identify well-known celebrities and sports stars who have been open about their own mental health.  Entry forms are available in the library or via email (

All entry forms must be returned to the Library by Tuesday 18th April when a winner will be drawn from the correct entries.
