Looking for answers to medical and health questions? The Tuality Health Information Resource Center can help. Sponsored by the Tuality Healthcare Foundation, this free consumer health library is located in the Tuality Health Education Center. It features books, pamphlets, magazines, slides tapes, videos and models--all related to health and available to the public for checkout. Because THRC is an associated academic library of WCCLS, patrons can also search for and request materials by using the WCCLS catalog, either on-line or at their nearest WCCLS member library. To contact our librarian, or for more information, call 503-681-1702
