Have you or a loved one been recently diagnosed with a medical disorder? Have you been dealing with a medical condition for some years now? Are you curious about a health topic? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this guide is a good starting place for you. Here we will discuss common health issues that many adults and their families are facing. You will find information to clear up misunderstanding you may have, links to other websites for additional information, book recommendations that we have in our library, and a listing of health programs we will be sponsoring here at the library along with community partners.
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." -World Health Organization
LSTA funds awarded by the State Library of North Carolina are made possible through funding from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. The LSTA grant program administered by the State Library of North Carolina funds library projects across the state that advance literacy and lifelong learning, expand access to library resources and expertise, promote partnerships and collaboration, and digitize materials important to the cultural heritage of North Carolina.
The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 122,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute's mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. Through the LSTA Grants to States program IMLS provides funds to State Library agencies using a population-based formula. State libraries may use the appropriation to support statewide initiatives and services; they may also distribute the funds through competitive subgrants to public, academic, school, special, and research libraries.
