We are excited to announce that Teaneck Public Library has been selected to participate in NJ Health Connect! This program is administered by the NJ State Library with support from the East Brunswick Public Library and aims to provide patrons with access to health resources and telehealth apps.
How does it work? Patrons aged 18 years and older can use their library card to borrow an iPad from the Reference Desk. iPads can be used to help you see your doctor for a telehealth visit, attend a job interview, and access trustworthy health information. iPads may be borrowed for 14 days and must be returned in person at the Reference Desk (click here to view the entire iPad Borrower Agreement).
The following types of apps and websites are already loaded onto each iPad:
- Apps to help you conduct a telehealth visit with your provider
- Health information resources
- COVID Updates for NJ
- Crisis Hotlines
- Mental health resources
- Resources to support teens
- Zoom and Google Meet
If you have any additional questions regarding this program, please contact our Emerging Technologies Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
