HealthConnections: Libraries and Health

HealthConnections 400 logo RT.jpg

Libraries are sometimes called “third spaces." A third space is one that provides a level playing field, is accessible, has loose structure, and has a sense of community. As such, libraries are increasingly major players in promoting the health of communities and people. Dr. Carole Myers of the University of Tennessee College of Nursing speaks with Dr. Steve Smith, University of Tennessee Dean of Libraries.
