The Children’s Hospital Family Libraries

The Family Information Library is helping families to become better-informed members of the health care team while allowing them to participate more fully in the health care of their children.

Located on the second floor of the Children’s Hospital to the left of the main elevator bank, the library provides books, pamphlets and DVDS with child health information that is up-to-date, accurate and suitable for the layperson. It also has a fax machine, photocopier, scanner, printer and two computers with Internet accesses for families to use, and produces a quarterly newsletter, Library Link.

The library supports the Children’s Hospital staff by acting as the distribution centre for patient education materials, and by providing literature searches and document delivery.

The Family Information Library is a resource for pediatric patients and their families, medical and allied health staff, and the community-at-large. They provide services to the entire catchment area of the Children’s Hospital including all of Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut.

This information is brought to you by the Family Information Library Librarian, Emma Robin.

The Family Information Library is made possible by your support of the Children’s Hospital Book Market.
