Dunoon Library Celebrates National Playlist Day

Libraries are key players in the Help Point network, sharing the power of personalised playlists with people affected by dementia in their local communities.

liveArgyll libraries are one of over 60 library groups within the Playlist for Life Help Point network and share our resources throughout Argyll and Bute. The library team are very supportive of Playlist for Life, displaying printed resources in all libraries, helping us reach island communities through their venues on on Bute, Mull, Tiree and the mobile library on Islay. 

In September, to highlight National Playlist Day, Dunoon Library hosted a Musical Tea and invited people from local care homes, befriending and carer groups. 

“We had some tune-themed fun and a lovely afternoon ‘Musical Tea’ at Dunoon Library last week. Thank you to everyone at Cowal Elderly Befrienders who came along and Playlist for Life for providing wonderful resources.”

The 100 years book is a great resource. It sits central to the display in the library and will soon be dog eared. It creates many a conversation and, dare I say, many a sing-song!”

Cowal Elderly Befrienders SCIO provide over 20,000 hours of Befriending services to around 200 older people every week. Find out more about their services here.


Thank you to the Scottish Power Foundation for supporting us to connect with rural and island communities.
