Visitors to Bath Library will be able to learn more about Multiple Sclerosis this week.
An exhibition stand with information about the condition has been set up in the main part of the library in the Podium.
Robert Side, chairman of Bath MS Society, spent Monday installing the exhibition to mark Multiple Sclerosis Week.
It will remain on display until Saturday.
Mr Side said: "Every branch of the society is doing something to try and inform the public about what MS is.
"It's a common neurological disorder which affects one person in 1,000 throughout the country.
"The society works to try to look after these people, particularly those who have been newly diagnosed.
"And it is very important that society as a whole is aware of the disease and aware of what we can do to help."
