You may already know about the NNLM Reading Club, a selection of “ready-to-use” book titles along with free and downloadable materials designed to help libraries support the health information needs in their communities. Due to COVID-19, All of Us Community Engagement funded in-person activities are suspended until further notice. This includes shipping the NNLM Reading Club kits.
Libraries can host a virtual book discussion and make titles available to borrow in a digital format. We also recommend that all awardees include and/or link to All of Us downloadable materials for users to access during your library’s virtual book club discussion. Libraries can purchase physical books and audio books if your library offers a safe method for patrons to borrow books (ex. curb side pick up or contactless delivery).
Award recipients will need to host at least one virtual discussion event by March 30th, 2021, fill out the Reading Club survey, and share the event on the Virtual Programs page. This award will be available until funds are exhausted.
