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.
