Library Services for Patients and Families

At Children’s Mercy Kansas City, we understand how important it is for patients and families to have high-quality, trustworthy health information. 

If you have a question about a new diagnosis, medical condition, medications, or a procedure, our medical librarians will provide evidence-based information related to your question.

The library-provided information will be in plain language from reliable sources; however, it will not cover everything available on the requested topic. The librarians do not recommend any particular treatment and highly recommend talking with a health care provider to determine how the provided information applies to your child. All questions are kept confidential.

Email your health-related question to our Library Services team at with subject: Ask a Librarian. Please include your specific question and what type of information you need (e.g., new diagnosis, drug information, test, treatment). We will respond to your request within three business days.
