Community Engagement in Health: Expanded Access via Technology 2019-2020

The Arvin A. Brown Library in Richford VT requests funding to upgrade computers and software so as to make information and access available to the broader community. This includes information from NNLM, NLM, and about the Research Program. Richford residents have great need to research government sites and other reliable sources about health particularly regarding addiction, lifestyle, and disabilities and the library serves as a safe, private space in which to access these sites and apply for programs. The requested funds will allow us to serve a wider audience and protect patron privacy, generally increasing overall use and improving health within the town.
