Drug Info for public libraries

Anyone visiting your library may need information about alcohol or other drugs. They may be concerned about a family member, doing a school assignment, or simply wanting to know the health implications of alcohol or caffeine consumption. Even if they have never asked a question about drugs or alcohol, libraries can help people with their information needs.

Drug Info is a partnership between the NSW Ministry of Health, the State Library of NSW and NSW public libraries. 

The State Library provides quality information about drugs and alcohol via the Drug Info website, educational resources, promotional material and drug and alcohol awareness campaigns. The Library also provides professional development courses which build the skills, knowledge and confidence of public library staff to meet the information needs of their communities about alcohol and other drugs.


Providing drug and alcohol information to your community

Public libraries are safe spaces, accessible and open to all which makes them the perfect place to access quality, up to date information about alcohol and other drugs.
