Attention: Public and Association Library Directors/Managers
Survey Deadline: August 31, 2018
 
To help combat the continuing rise in opioid related deaths in New York State, State laws were recently amended to allow New York State’s public and association libraries to administer opioid antagonists (naloxone) in library facilities by partnering with a New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Registered Opioid Overdose Prevention Program.
 
As part of a coordinated statewide effort, the New York State Library, the State Education Department, the State Department of Health, the New York Library Association, the Public Library System Directors Organization (PULISDO), and the Harm Reduction Coalition collaborated to create Guidance for Implementing Opioid Overdose Prevention Measures in Public Libraries to help all New York State libraries implement their own opioid overdose prevention programs.

The results of this brief survey of library directors/managers are intended to help the State Library and its partner organizations:
  • assess the status of opioid overdose prevention measures in libraries;
  • identify additional tools, resources and guidance needed; and
  • identify programs, services, best practices and other strategies that New York's libraries are employing to assist communities in fighting the opioid overdose epidemic.

Survey results will be shared with the library community.

Thank you for completing this important survey.
