Hello All,
Ruti, thanks for sharing your link and no doubt these guides could be very useful.  Might I humbly suggest that each public library consider linking to their local hospital(s) which often have health information materials available on their website, as well as information for the local public on the hospital services and physicians.

For instance, Botsford Hospital serves Livonia, Southfield, Western Detroit, Novi, West Bloomfield, and other surrounding areas.

Website:  http://www.botsford.org
Health Information: http://www.botsford.org/health_information/

Thank you for your consideration.

Dear colleagues,

The University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) maintains a database of patient education materials used in our health system. The database is available for free on the Internet and requires no registration or login. The URL is: http://careguides.med.umich.edu/

The site includes materials that have been created by U-M Health System experts on many difficult-to-find topics, rare conditions and state-of-the-art therapies. It also includes materials from other organizations that have been reviewed and approved by U-M experts. Print materials, videos, websites and apps are included.

Feel free to link http://careguides.med.umich.edu/ to your library's website and help your patrons access clinician-vetted, current and accurate patient-education materials.

Here is a link to a flyer you can print and distribute at your library, health fairs or other events.
