Council Cabinet member for community and culture, Councillor Nick Draper said: "I think our libraries are the perfect place to visit any time that you're feeling stressed. Reading is a great hobby and a good way of relieving stress and if a book doesn't do the trick, then try out some of your library's alternative relaxation sessions. These sessions run regularly, so don't just wait until a day like National Stress Awareness to get involved, come along any time."
