Health & Wellness at West Van Library

With zero budget, Cathrin Campbell, Information Services Librarian (since retired) at West Vancouver Memorial Library did a great thing for readers, she created a Health & Wellness section.  Her mandate was that material should be current, no more than 5-7 years old.  Using the Dewey system to file the materials, she created what she calls “shelf talkers” , large signs for different topics, so users could browse the materials.  The recent user survey revealed that circulation was up for the Health & Wellness materials, in fact 42 % said they had used the materials.

Why not try yourself?  You can also browse the website.  Just follow the links (Research–Explore–Health & Wellness) to the Health & Wellness page, which offers many useful links.

Happy reading!
