From the National Institute of Health website:

The NNLM Reading Club is a selection of “ready-to-use” fiction and nonfiction book titles along with free and downloadable materials designed to help libraries support health literacy and their communities’ health information needs by celebrating important National Health Observances through the fun and intimacy of a book club.

Any United States library that is an organizational member of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine is eligible to apply and to receive one NNLM Reading Club Book Kit from November 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019.

Due to the limited supply of federally-sponsored NNLM Reading Club Book Kits, libraries that support outreach to vulnerable populations and meet the NIH Underrepresented in Biomedical Research criteria receive priority status.
