October is Health Literacy Month! Libraries, a place to help with health information..

October is Health Literacy Month promoting the importance of understandable health information. This annual, worldwide, awareness-raising event has been going strong ever since Helen Osborne founded it in 1999.

At our local library, there are quite a few health books that may assist with health questions. You may also find health library materials information through the Chinook Libraries Network and our Gale Online Resources, from our Waldport Public Library website.  

The theme for Health Literacy Month is “Be a Health Literacy Hero.” It’s about taking action and finding ways to improve health communication. Health Literacy Heroes are individuals, teams, or organizations that not only identify health literacy problems but also act to solve them.
