From the most rural towns to bustling cities, libraries in Nevada are well-positioned to improve the health and well being of their communities, but how? Attend this session to learn about the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), a super-partner that provides free services, training, and resources to all types of libraries in Nevada and around the country. NNLM helps libraries engage their patrons with free book club kits, innovative health programs, citizen science projects; technology improvement opportunities, and much, much more. NNLM also helps libraries partner with local, state, and regional organizations to expand services that might not be possible otherwise. In addition, the presenter will introduce a simple tool that identifies the major health issues in your community populations to help guide your programs and services. This session will provide ideas for easy actions that any library can take now, plus provide strategies for building robust partnerships for longer-term projects.
