Looking for health information? Thanks to a partnership between West Park Hospital and Park County Library System, there is a great place to begin your medical and health research.
It’s the Planetree Health Resource Center located behind the Reference Desk in the Coe Reading Room which also houses the Locked Case Collection in the Park County Library in Cody.
It has its own classification system
It’s different from the rest of the library. It employs two-letter designations for many health categories. The shelves are marked with the ranges of categories.
Open the PDF link (at right) to see what that system is. Planetree Guide
