The mission of the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving the public's access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. The Program is coordinated by the National Library of Medicine and carried out through a nationwide network of health science libraries and information centers.
The Carteret County Public Library System is a Network of the National Library of Medicine registered affiliate.
This designation allows the library access to free health and science resources for our community. Through this network the library has access to grants and materials to increase our health literacy initiatives across the county.
Join us in our first NNLM sponsored program, The NNLM Reading Club.
This grant sponsored program is designed to help libraries support the health information needs in their communities. Through the fun and interaction of a book club environment, readers will discuss health and wellness topics important to them and their loved ones as well as discover NIH National Library of Medicine evidence-based consumer health resources.
