M/RCPL is proud to partner with several local organizations, in order to better serve our community.
M/RCPL and Richland Public Health have partnered to offer blood pressure cuffs that library customers can borrow. These blood pressure (BP) cuffs were provided to the Library through a grant written by Richland Public Health. Customers can borrow the cuffs from the library in order to track their blood pressure over a period of 2 weeks.
Read more about tracking your blood pressure and the BP/Heart Health connection HERE.

Visitors to the Main Library will notice a second partnership with Richland Public Health - a drinking fountain that has a special water bottle spout. This fountain (located in the 2nd floor lobby) allows library guests to easily refill water bottles and encourages people to drink water before pop or juice and to re-use water bottles.
M/RCPL and the Moms Clean Air Force of Ohio are working together to provide SPECK Air Quality Monitors to Library customers. These monitors were provided through a national grant and distributed to libraries around the county by chapters of the Moms Clean Air Force group. The SPECK Monitors test for particles and allergens in the air in your home. The information from this testing can help customers determine if action needs to be taken to improve the air in their home. Learn more about the Moms Clean Air Force group of Ohio HERE.
Bromfield Library & Information Commons (on The OSU-M and NC State Campus)
In an effort to serve the students of OSU-M, M/RCPL has created a small, leisure reading collection in the Bromfield Library. This collection includes titles of particular interest to students, popular titles and authors, graphic novels and a small number of DVDs.
Note: Customers of M/RCPL can also use their M/RCPL library card at the Bromfield Library for some items (unfortunately, not the leisure collection).
Another alternative is the Bromfield Library's Local Courtesy Card. For more information about using Bromfield Library click HERE.
