This project will update the collections and technology at the Campton Public Library to support a healthier and well informed community. Additionally, we would have informational packets that show patrons where they can find reliable health information including from the National Library of Medicine. Also, laminated copies of important information provided by medical specialists referring to common ailments, and the best ages to have preventative care and testing done. To help raise awareness about , in addition to information, we will install a blood pressure machine, a scale with weight and BMI, and a massage chair in the library. We will additionally have three Fitbits, three Tablets, and three Chromebooks available to check out so that community members can do medical research in the comfort of their own homes. All of this will be displayed and explained at our Open House kick-off. After this we will have monthly programs, "MEDtalks", on a variety of crucial medical topics, important for the people in our community. Each of these programs will have presenters that are knowledgeable in the particular field they are discussing.
