The doctor is in

Such a great idea.

Just outside of Edinburgh, they have a program where your family doctor can perscribe a book to anyone on any topic (i.e. depression, cancer, grief, pregnancy, whatever) at any time. The patient brings this sheet to the librarian and gets the book, no questions asked. In today’s overly-medicated world, I really appreciate the idea that there are doctors out there willing to take the time to see the need someone might have and for the library to be able to meet that need.
