NJ Health Connect

The Denville Public Library Joins Libraries Statewide in Telehealth Program

The ongoing pandemic has put a spotlight on inequities in the healthcare system, especially among the most marginalized members of the community. Those who suffer most are new immigrants, the elderly, and people from lower incomes who lack access to medical care, technology, and health information that is necessary to make informed choices about their health.

They are confronted with barriers to health equity, such as the ability to find health information in a language or reading level that they can understand in order to ask their medical provider the right questions. Other barriers, such as the high cost of medical insurance or the need to work irregular shift hours, exclude some people from seeing a doctor during normal office hours.  The Denville Public Library is playing a role in levelling the playing field through NJHealthConnect@Your Library so that everyone has an equal chance to live their healthiest life possible.

 NJHealthConnect@Your Library addresses health inequities in the community by providing iPads that are preloaded with apps and links to telemedicine sites for doctor appointments, multilingual health information, low literacy health resources, places for mental health support for adults and teens, the latest COVID updates, and crisis hotlines in New Jersey.

While not free, telemedicine is a more affordable, portable, and convenient lifeline for people with or without medical insurance to connect with a doctor. Telehealth is a skyrocketing trend that grew out of the pandemic and is here to stay with its proven patient satisfaction. It allows people, especially those most vulnerable, to obtain an early-stage diagnosis, prevent illness, seek early treatment intervention, and obtain and renew medications so that health equity is within the grasp of everyone.

To reserve an iPad, contact the library by phone at 973-627-6555 or online at www.denvilelibrary.org.  The New Jersey State Library, an affiliate of Thomas Edison State University, is administering this program. The project is supported by American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

“We are thankful for the availability of ARPA funds, which will allow us to support the state’s mission to help people get timely, high-quality health care services. The ongoing pandemic has emphasized a need for health literacy, especially among vulnerable populations, and we’re proud to have public libraries bridge the digital divide by offering telehealth resources to their communities,” said Jen Nelson, New Jersey State Librarian.

To reserve an iPad please place a hold in the Library Catalog.  Search for Healthconnect.

Northstar Digital Literacy

Northstar Digital Literacy Assessments Now Available at the Denville Library!

The Northstar Digital Literacy Assessment, offered through The Denville Public Library, is aimed at helping adults acquire the skills they need in today’s workplace. 

People without basic computer know-how are at a disadvantage when it comes to finding a job because employers expect basic computer skills for most jobs, including many entry-level positions.  The Denville Library joined Northstar because it will help our residents have a better chance at getting jobs and getting ahead.”

The free set of assessments includes self-guided modules: Essential Computer Skills (Basic Computer Skills, Internet Basics, Using Email, Windows, Mac OS), Essential Software Skills (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), and Using Technology in Daily Life (Social Media, Information Literacy, and Creative Job Search). Closed-captioning is available and screen readers are supported.

Anyone can access the modules and take the tests online at digitalliteracyassessments.org. At the end of each test, the user receives a page of results, which lists the skills that have been mastered and the areas that need improvement. Many community organizations offer computer classes that are aligned with Northstar Digital Literacy Standards. 

The modules are based on a set of basic computer competency benchmarks developed by a diverse group of literacy providers, business representatives and nonprofit agencies.  These standards help ensure that computer classes are teaching adult learners the exact skills they need to succeed in the workplace.

To earn a certificate for one or more of the modules, adults must take the tests in a supervised setting at an approved test site. The Denville Library is among the community organizations using the standards as part of its programming, and offering the certificates.  Currently The Denville Public Public Library is offering non-proctored assessments.  Supervised, proctored assessments and in person classes are coming soon.
