New Health Literacy Toolkit

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) and The American Library Association (ALA) have partnered through the Libraries Transform public awareness campaign to create a free toolkit for Health Literacy Month, which is observed in October.  

NNLM and ALA’s partnership equips library professionals with customizable tools to raise awareness of how libraries support health literacy in their communities. The toolkit provides key messages, program ideas and downloadable marketing materials, including bookmark templates and social media graphics, for libraries to use as they promote health literacy in October and throughout the year. The wide-ranging array of health literacy topics covered include nutrition, aging, and chronic illness.

Join the Libraries Transform Campaign to receive updates and access to these new tools.
