Collection Equity: Winter Harbor Public Library

In order for the public to make informed decisions about their health, they not only need the ability to read and understand current information about healthy eating and active living, they need to see it in their community, to do the actions such as walking and to have clear resources of how to incorporate the knowledge into their real life.
Getting their hands onto the most understandable reading is only a singular key to successfully making the changes in their lives. To pull groups in the community together to provide lessons learned through stories and walking together would provide a stronger connection to the why’s and why nots.
Creating a culture of Whole Community Health together.
