Salt Lake County Library is taking action in the opioid crisis by supplying Naloxone kits containing opioid-overdose reversal drugs to its patrons. Anyone can go to their local library in Salt Lake County to obtain a kit. No questions or personal information is required.

This initiative is one of several across the country in which librarians are recognizing and responding to opioid overdoses in their communities.  Read an article about Salt Lake County’s efforts on Route Fifty website. You can also go to Ted Med to a Philadelphia librarian’s story about serving amid the opioid crisis.
