Rural libraries are an important partner in community health. JCPL collaborates with the Jefferson County Health Department, Jefferson County Agricultural Extension, and OneBlood to help provide free health screenings and services to patrons. Our health and wellness programs include:
- The Sanitation Station, which includes up-to-date information about health issues in Jefferson County.
- Free mammograms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month
- Blood drives
- Healthy heart screenings
- Agricultural and food education
- Health, fitness and cooking classes
Library staff can also assist you with finding local health resources, applying for health insurance, and finding reliable books and information about health and wellness.
