A new collection of books are available in South Gloucestershire libraries to help people living with autism or Asperger’s.
 The new books have been recommended by people with autism and those who live and work with them, including the library service and the South Gloucestershire Autism Planning Group.
 The recommended books provide information and advice, support for living well, advice for relatives and carers, plus personal stories.
 Communities Chair Cllr Heather Goddard said: “These books are free to borrow for a special extended loan period of six weeks, and if the book you want is not on the shelves when you want it, the library can get hold of it for you free of charge.
 The interactive list of new autism books can be found at www.southglos.gov.uk/reading4health
