Our Health Libraries


The Family Health Library

The Family Health Library at Children's Hospital Colorado is open to patients, families, educators and healthcare professionals. The library is stocked with books and videos about a variety of topics, from parenting to pediatric illnesses.

Need information? We'll find it for you, for free.

If your child is sick or in the hospital, doing research and finding medical information can seem like a daunting task -- which is why we've created The Family Health Library. At no cost to patients or families, we will research and compile the information you need to help make things a little easier.

Information packets

Librarians from The Family Health Library are available to do in-depth research for you via the Internet, articles and journals; we'll also provide information from local and national support groups. We can research information on illnesses, wellness, parenting and more. Request an information packet to be sent to you, free of charge.

Books to check out

Books from The Family Health Library can be checked out by anyone; the books can even be returned to most public libraries in Colorado, saving you an extra trip to the hospital.
