Healthy Community Tools for Public Libraries

Posted by on April 22nd, 2019 Posted in: All of Us, General, Public Library


All Americans need access to current, reliable health information, especially as we navigate complex issues like health care, insurance and aging. Public libraries are a go-to resource throughout this journey.

Healthy Community Tools for Public Libraries, a project of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) and the Public Library Association (PLA), brings together a host of resources to help public libraries better serve their patrons’ health needs.

Most recently, PLA has added a nationwide online scheduling tool that allows users to search for free, local healthcare enrollment assistance.
