NNLM Wash & Learn National Model

Libraries Without Borders is being funded by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region for $19,723 to develop phase 1 of the Wash & Learn Initiative-Health (WALI-Health) National Model. This project will create a national model to guide the Libraries Without Borders WALI-Health program, which delivers library services and programs in laundromats. This project seeks to expand WALI-Health by increasing the capacity of libraries, small business owners, and community partners to develop tailored outreach projects that reach low-income populations, many of which are underrepresented in biomedical research communities. Libraries Without Borders will establish a working group that will create a set of tools, data, and best-practices that would enable any library to launch a WALI-Health program on their own.
