If you've ever tried looking up health information on the internet, you know how difficult it can be to locate reliable information from trustworthy sources. Happily we have a new tool for you, the Library System of Lancaster County Health Information Network. The Health Information Network is a Public Library initiative in partnership with Lancaster County Hospitals/Health Care Providers and United Way of Lancaster County that is designed to provide reliable health information to Lancaster County residents in a variety of forms.
I am also pleased to announce that Bookmobile staff member Becky Hynicka is now a certified Consumer Health Information Specialist. Becky has completed specialized training in where and how to find the best information, evaluating the accuracy and reliability of information sources, and researching alternative medical information. Those of you who know Becky also know that she goes the extra mile for our customers. If there is information about health issues you need, please be in touch.
