Health, Wellness & Safety

People seek out the library for many reasons related to health, wellness and safety. In addition to reference and other types of educational materials, libraries provide a range of programs and services – often in partnership with other community organizations – to help people manage medical issues, and advance healthy lifestyles, including the preventive activities that ensure people’s and community well-being.

This category recognizes innovations in partnering with health and wellness providers, providing resources for underserved populations, engaging health and wellness programs for target populations as well as public safety initiatives.
