UVA Patient and Family Library PFL

Patient & Family Library

What does the library do?

The library offers:

  •     Health information and other research help
  •     MyChart help, for online access to medical records
  •     iPads and health-related books for use within the medical center
  •     Quiet place to study, read, or wait

The library is open to UVA patients, families, and guests, as well as to the general public. 


Can I bring my child to the library? 

Yes, we welcome small children and love to show them around the library. We also have a monthly storytime program, when Briar, the Book Faery, comes to visit the library. Children can come hear Briar read a story, and then get a book for their own library. Briar is a funny and clever faery who will bring a smile to your child's face -- and to yours!


When: The second Thursday of each month. Check the poster in the library for the time and date.
