Llandrillo Library‘s insight:

"To get the best health outcomes, health-related decisions should be based on clear and correct understanding of relevant health information and services. There are many reasons why this often does not happen. People who are not literate in general will likely not be health literate. People with cultural backgrounds different from the society-at-large in which they live may have attitudes or customs at odds with conventional health practices." – How does your Public Library service address this need? Do you think it’s part of the service you should provide?
