Collection Equity: Moultonborough Public Library

We plan on purchases books related to aging, general health, retirement, and longevity. These resources will be placed on a special shelf and highlighted in our catalog so they are easy to find. We also plan to purchase multiple copies of the three books found on the NNLM website specifically to use for book discussions. We will be contacting health providers to see if they would like to be part of the discussions and to answer questions related to the topics found in those books.

Our goal is to engage seniors with resources related to health topics and to start working towards making health literacy an overall goal for the library.
