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.
