Health Kits

The library has received a grant from the National Library of Medicine to fund health kits covering a variety of topics that will soon be available to check out from the library. Topics covered by the kits include:

  • Alzheimer’s and Dementia
  • Autism
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Breast Cancer
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Down Syndrome
  • Grief
  • Heart Disease and Hypertension
  • Mindfulness

Each kit contains a variety of curated materials including books, DVDs, models, and additional items that will provide helpful information on each topic. Each kit will be contained in a backpack labeled with the kit topic that can be discretely checked out by library users to provide them with numerous sources of health information about each subject.

More details about the items contained in each health kit will be available soon.
