The Health Library at GFS is a satellite branch of the PlaneTree Health Library . Through this collaboration, GFS makes health and medical information more easily available to individuals and families in the East San José community. With assistance from our library coordinator, community residents can learn about health through a collection of over 700 books, videos, and pamphlets available in both English and Spanish.
The Health Library has an Internet work station where residents can find useful and trusted health and medical websites. The PlaneTree website includes recommended health sites, many of which are helpful for monolingual Spanish speakers.
Other health library services include:
|Our Health Library has books to help parents stay informed on illnesses that can affect them and their children|
|"My son has asthma and thanks to a book I got from the Health Library, I can help my son better. Now, I can understand his problem and I have followed some advice from the book and his health has improved."
