Welcome to NNLM

Public libraries are critical to our nation’s health.

All Americans need access to current, reliable health information, especially as we navigate complex issues like health care, insurance and aging. Public libraries are a go-to resource throughout this journey.

This website, a project of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) and the Public Library Association (PLA), brings together a host of resources to help public libraries better serve their patrons’ health needs.
