Looking Ahead

Bo Hospital Library is currently housed in a temporary unit, which limits important work on further increasing access to high-quality medical information.  

We want to build an educational Resource Centre at the hospital. This facility would increase study space, offer a wider range of resources, and cultivate  group working and learning.

Please join with us to grow this library!
