Every Monday in August, You Can Use a Study Room for Telehealth Appointment
New York State officials want to make sure those without Wi-Fi can still gain access to their doctors via Internet devices.
The Liverpool Public Library is part of the effort to increase teleheath visits.
I wrote a column about our involvement in the NY Statewide Senior Action Council program for this week's community Eagle News.

The Liverpool Public Library is now offering the privacy of personal Study Room appointments and the possible use of a Chromebook every Monday for those who need Wi-Fi access or a device for a telehealth visit.
The weekly appointment slots are part of the NY StateWide Senior Action Council program aimed to increase telemedicine healthcare availability to those who do not have Wi-Fi or computer access at home.
Patrons must secure appointment time slots by calling 315-457-0310 or going online at https://www.lpl.org/events/programs-and-events/events-calendar/.
Come to the Information @ LPL Desk at the appointment time and tell the staffer if you need the Chromebook reserved for the telehealth visits.
Patrons should have the telemedicine appointment set up with their medical professional and the website URL needed to connect available prior to making the Study Room appointment. LPL staffers can help set up the Chromebook, but will not be available to help with telehealth appointments because of HIIPA rules.
The LPL public Wi-Fi is available daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and can be accessed in parking spots along Tulip and Second streets. Personal smart devices can be used for telemedicine appointments by those comfortable conversing in their vehicles.
Please do not come to the library for a telehealth visit if you're feeling ill.
