New health promotion resources bulletin

Our latest resources bulletin is now available on the library website. To link in with the annual national No Smoking Day in March, we have focussed on some of the newest resources we have on smoking cessation. These include DVDs, displays, flipcharts, leaflets, posters and the "life or death lungs" models which graphically illustrate the effects of smoking on the lungs. You will also find resources on other health related topics and some information about forthcoming health events.
