Libraries can be Great Weapons against Loneliness and Mental Health related Issues

With sponsored facebook ads reminding us of the 1.2 million older people that will be lonely this Christmas, it seems as though as a nation we're still boldly sailing towards our shared vision of rendering every last public amenity into a commodity or service we have to buy back in order for it to continue to exist.
Libraries are literally the incarnation of learning and education, but more importantly now I feel as though they represent more than just the importance of literacy. They can function as hubs of well-being, social cohesion, tolerance and empowerment too. Literally antidotes to the avalanche of loneliness and mental health related issues we're facing.
