Suffolk Libraries will be holding a new countywide event on Sunday 27 January. Super Happy Sunday will focus on improving people's health and happiness at what can be a gloomy time of year.

We have teamed up with East of England Co-op, Abbeycroft Leisure, Everyone Active, DW Fitness First, Sentinel Leisure Trust and Action for Happiness for the event. Thanks to the generosity of these organisations, staff at all libraries will be offering special envelopes containing free leisure centre and health club passes and free happiness-boosting postcards. 50 customers will also receive free East of England Co-op vouchers for healthy teas and snacks in their envelopes. Suffolk Libraries is also linking up with the Suffolk County Council’s Most Active County partnership.

There will be displays of wellbeing books in libraries and a host of different activities taking place for customers to enjoy. We have also curated several health and wellbeing themed eLibrary lists.

Lisa Brennan, content and reader development librarian, said: "We’re aiming to help people start 2019 with a smile instead of the January blues and encourage them to visit a library in Suffolk for Super Happy Sunday. It’ll be a day for boosting your mood with free giveaways thanks to the generosity of the organisations who are supporting the event. Why not make time for you this year and join us on Sunday 27 January at Suffolk Libraries to focus on your happiness and health?"

A list of Super Happy Sunday events follows, with further events to be confirmed. Libraries that are not holding special events will still be giving out envelopes containing postcards and leisure passes.

If you're looking to get more active in the New Year, six of our libraries - Bury St Edmunds, Gainsborough, Haverhill, Newmarket, Saxmundham and Stowmarket - have Move It sports equipment which customers can borrow.
