Seed funding from HSLIC provided an opportunity for us to create ten Reading Is Healthy Book Club Kits and made them available for checkout to both public libraries and community organizations in New Mexico. Each kit includes eight copies of a book club selection along with discussion questions and health literacy materials.
The goals of this project are to encourage conversations around health and wellness topics, destigmatize the discussion of health topics, and increase health literacy in our communities. This project aligns with HSLIC’s strategic goal to empower our communities to engage with health information.
