Library & Public Health Collaboration Toolkit

The “Library & Public Health Collaboration Toolkit” is a planning resource for public libraries and public health agencies to assist in forming a collaborative partnership that meets the needs of the community. The toolkit provides information, ideas, and resources to inspire and facilitate public library and public health collaboration. This toolkit was created from funding received by the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) through the Telligen Community Initiative. Through this grant funding, a project called “Harnessing the Power of Iowa’s Libraries” was implemented which focuses on supporting and equipping Iowa’s libraries with the tools, resources, and programs to collaboratively address social determinants of health (SDH) gaps and improve population health.
