The Biblio-Santé program is an information service for health system users and caregivers coordinated by the Québec Public Library Association. More than 780 public libraries and health libraries across Québec participate in this initiative.
Biblio-Santé consists of a series of 15 thematic booklets that inform health system users and caregivers about various illnesses as well as the issues that they face. Each booklet provides a list of organizations, a selection of relevant websites, as well as reading and film suggestions. All information in these booklets has been selected, analyzed and validated by trained librarians.
Biblio-Santé is an initiative of the Charlemagne, Assomption and Repentigny libraries that was started in 2006 under the name Biblio-Aidants. The Québec Public Library Association would like to thank these three cities for allowing it to extend the program to the rest of Québec by transferring the copyright.
In 2021, in an effort to accurately represent its content and the people it aims to serve, the program changed its name to Biblio-Santé.
