NJ HealthConnect iPads are here:

In order to tackle the inequities in our healthcare system, the Old Bridge Public Library is proud to provide iPads through our partnership with NJ HealthConnect@yourlibrary! 

These iPads allow you to:

  • Obtain access to telehealth apps, which can connect you to a doctor 24/7
  • Read health information in your language
  • Monitor COVID updates
  • Access crisis hotlines
  • Obtain mental health support
  • Access teen help
  • Utilize meeting apps, such as Zoom and Google Meet

In order to prevent any personally identifying information from being stored,:

  • sign in ability is disabled
  • password saving is disabled
  • a manual reboot can be done by each user

Upon return, library staff will wipe out the iPad between users.  The iPads are sanitized upon return.  

The iPads are CIPA-complaint and the telehealth apps are HIPAA-compliant.

To reserve an iPad, or to find out more, please call the Reference department, (732) 721-5600 X5033.
