Family Resource Libraries
Children’s Health℠ focuses on a family-friendly environment to help make every child's stay as comfortable and convenient as possible.
The libraries' goal is to provide an inviting place for patients and families to seek information or to relax with leisure material. From paying bills to accessing work or school our staff is dedicated to making life better for children by making sure families have a place to access reliable health information and stay connected with resources outside of the hospital if needed.
Each of our libraries has a wide selection of books, magazines, and brochures on a variety of health topics for children and adults. Some materials are available in Spanish. Check out our library catalog to see a list of titles.
In addition to consumer health information and collection of leisure materials, the libraries also offer the following services:
- Computers and iPads with internet access
