About Us

The Health and Wellness Library is operated by the Grossmont Healthcare District to help meet the health information needs of local residents. It is a free public library specializing in health-related materials.

The Library provides books, DVDs, pamphlets, magazines, newsletters, online resources, and its website with extensive links to reliable sources for all major health topics. A growing digital collection of ebooks, online magazines, and streaming video is available 24/7 from anywhere with a library card. Library cards are issued with appropriate ID to community residents as well as those who work, go to school, or have health-related ties to the Grossmont Healthcare District (East County region of San Diego).

The staff is trained to help users find the health and medical information they need. For those who want to find basic health information online and are confused where to start, go to the Reliable Health Links page and click on MedlinePlus or one of the other websites linked there.
