FCN Library Collection
In 2004, the Faith Community Nurse Network established a collection of faith community nursing reference materials at the Hennepin County Library System. It was our intent to make these texts and materials available to practicing faith community nurses throughout our region and state via the inter-library loan system. The collection is based at the Brooklyn Center Library, 6125 Shingle Creek Parkway, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430.
