Healthy People Library Project

The Healthy People Library Project was a five-year project to bring to the nation’s public libraries the latest information about biomedical research. The project was designed to provide minority groups and other consumers easy access to current, reliable information on selected health topics at their local libraries.

The goal of the project was to empower libraries to play an active role in increasing the quality and years of healthy life and eliminating health disparities for all Americans, especially African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and Native Americans.
