Libraries Without Borders BSF has developed a program that expands opportunities for the poorest individuals and families. BSF will partner with the Brainerd Public Library BPL to install e-libraries and build libraries at laundromats in low-income and underserved communities. BSF and BPL will curate content from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine's Consumer Health Resources NNLM and facilitate trainings of how to use MedlinePlus at laundromats in order to: 1 Answer critical questions being asked by community members regarding health information; and 2 Facilitate trainings to find quality health information resources available on the Internet so that participants may make better informed health care decisions for themselves and to share this information with their families.
