Health Literacy Resources at your local library

By Ellen Sulzycki, Reference Librarian


Recently, Mason Square Branch Library received a grant from the National Library of Medicine for Community Engagement. Through this grant, Springfield City Librarians have been trained in best practices for health reference services. Margot Malachowski, previous Health Sciences Librarian at Baystate Medical, visited Springfield City Library for a training session on serving patrons with health related questions. Topics ranged from how to access reliable health data to how to locate primary care providers.

Mason Square Branch Library will soon have iPad tablets exclusively for patrons seeking health information. Visit a Springfield City Library location today to explore these recommended websites for health information:
