Connecting with Public Libraries Through a Monthly Column at Public Libraries Online

Tags: , ,


We are introducing an exciting addition to our connections with public libraries. Health Information @ the Library is a column designed to inform and empower public libraries on all related health information! This monthly column at Public Libraries Online is led by Bobbi Newman, R6, Jamia Williams, NTO, and Liz Morris, R5, and will feature NNLM staff from across the network sharing evidence-based health information resources, enriching educational opportunities, and valuable insights for public library staff. 

At NNLM, we are dedicated to empowering public libraries with the tools and resources they need to help their communities make informed decisions about their well-being. Collaboration with public libraries is at the heart of our endeavor as we partner to address communities’ diverse health information needs. The Health Information @ the Library column will explore essential topics, offer insights into evidence-based resources, present valuable educational opportunities, and explore innovative programming. You can subscribe to the column at Public Libraries Online.
