Health & Wellness

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 masks, hand sanitizer, and up-to-date information about health issues in Jefferson County.
  • Free mammograms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Blood drives
  • Healthy heart screenings
  • Health, fitness and cooking classes
  • Testing for COVID-19 and influenza during high-risk periods
  • Vaccination clinics

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.
