This study assessed the feasibility of partnerships between public libraries and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) for delivery of direct nutrition education and adoption of nutrition and physical activity supports. Reported here are findings from interviews conducted with 14 librarians between December 2015 and February 2016. Librarians spoke of initiatives they were doing around healthy eating and active living and how they would like to do more. They also articulated overlap between their patrons and the program’s target audience. Several opportunities for and challenges to building partnerships between public libraries and the SNAP-Ed program surfaced. © 2021 The Author(s).
