OCLC and PLA Issue a Call to Action to Combat the Opioid Crisis

OCLC teamed up with the Public Library Association (PLA) to publish a report, “Call to Action: Public Libraries and the Opioid Crisis.” It “offers tested strategies to consider as libraries determine local responses to the nationwide public health emergency.” The call to action encourages the following:
  • Evaluate local health data
  • Seek community partners
  • Educate staff and community members on the issue
  • Consider the need for staff care
  • Offer programs and services that support local needs

The suggestions were “informed by case study research with eight public libraries that have created community responses with local partners, as well as discussions with government agencies, public health and human services organizations, community organizations, and library leaders.”

For more information, read the press release.
