In order to support Solano County’s goals to build a healthy and well community, Solano County Library will focus programming in 2020 around health literacy.

“Live Well with Your Library” is our year-long health initiative. From circulating blood pressure kits, to flu shot clinics, to yoga classes for kids, and walking book clubs,

the Library will provide resources and programs for physical, mental, and community health.

We offer a variety of resources on different health topics at each of our branches. Our health materials are available in print, online, DVD, and various electronic formats.
