Books on Prescription is a way of getting access to a variety of self help books that have been recommended by specialists as being of benefit to some people with psychological problems. The way it works is that your GP (or other professional such as a psychologist or counsellor) would issue you with a prescription for an appropriate book from a list that they have. You then take this prescription to one of the participating libraries who would then exchange it for the book which you can normally keep for between 6-8 weeks (you can extend that if you need to). There are no fines if you return the book late.
