Health Kiosks

This program has ended.  Thank you. 

Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Kansas provided a $50,000 grant to the State Library for the purchase of 40 traveling health literacy stations.

Each kiosk consists of a stand and iPad, on which you will find local health resources.

  • Open to libraries on the courier (public, school, academic), except for counties outside of the BCBSKS service area (Johnson & Wyandotte).
  • 2 identical kiosks arrive with the requests.
  • WiFi Internet access required.
  • 2 month lending period, then will be asked to send kiosk on to next library.
  • Reservation slots available for the February-March 2016 loan period and beyond.

What should the local health page the library creates contain?
Make a list of health resources relevant to your community, some possibilities:

  • county health department website
  • local clinics, including for mental health
  • fitness & nutritional opportunities (recreation center, etc)
  • information on obtaining first aid, CPR, and other trainings (usually available through Fire Department / First Responders).

This is just a suggestion. Here are some fine examples created by other libraries:

Local Usage Statistics
The device management service has no way at this time to export usage data (i.e., Excel, PDF, Word). Everything is on a global graphical scale and only can been seen in the service console. If the service develops a report generating module for easy collection/distribution of individual device stats in the future, information will be provided here.

How big is this?
Kiosk - base is almost 12" square, stands about 4 feet tall.
Shipping case - a little over 4.5 feet long, note that it HAS WHEELS.
