The Connecticut State library's Health Library Initiative is one of the our Division of Library Development (DLD) Strategic Focus Plan "Seven Literacies" — a key element of the Division's LSTA Five Year Plan. The initiative consists of strategic partnerships; ongoing health webinar offerings; professional development workshops, and online health and wellness resources. These are offered via our Health Literacy in Libraries Libguide and through our Resources for the Public.
The Health Literacy Initiative began in 2015 with a DLD Health Literacy Fair and has since evolved into a health program series directed to the public, academic, school and special libraries we serve. Librarians implement programs and workshops in their respective communities, often developing strategic partnerships with their local health organizations.
The Connecticut State Library created a health program series aimed at all of the libraries they serve.
