Participants report being motivated
to change their lifestyles after they
were screened—some were even made
aware of serious health issues by taking
part in the program.
Regardless of your approach to
healthcare, whether you favor conventional, alternative, or complementary
remedies, you’ll find a book, newsletter,
or magazine to guide you. The Library
adds the latest diet, exercise, and health
books every month—and if you don’t
find what you need, a reference librarian can help you locate it.

accounting skills, the Library has what

a format that suits your learning style.
Exercise your brain with one of the
many continuing education opportunities
available online from the Library. Universal Class, LearningExpress, and Mango

to pick from—visit our website or talk
to a librarian to find the right course for
you. Enjoy live presentations? Attend
the Library’s popular Arizona Humanities speaker events and learn about history, archaeology, music, food, culture,
and more. In response to community
demand, we’ve doubled the number of
Arizona Humanities programs offered,
