By partnering on a Little Free Libraries LFL initiative with Floridas Okeechobee County Library OCL, this project aims to improve 95 residents health literacy and understanding of precision medicine, through facilitating awareness of and access to NLMs consumer health resources and NIHs Research Program. This project supports NNLMs mission to improve public health by empowering underserved groups to make effective use of information for health decision-making. Little Free Library is an 94 nonprofit that fosters neighborhood book exchanges through outdoor book-sharing boxes. There are hundreds of LFLs in Florida, but only one registered in Okeechobee so far. OCL is building 30 LFLs which will hold 30-50 books each and will be located on 95 county properties with heavy footfall, such as parks and civic centers.
