Both of the Wellness Spaces at the Biomedical Library will be closed until June 2021. Please visit the virtual Relaxation Room and Game Room available in the Engineering Library Suite on Penn Libraries Gather.Town.
The Biomedical Library receives an abundance of free consumer health information from the National Library of Medicine, the National Institute of Aging, Philadelphia FIGHT, and other government agencies and non-profit organizations. Stop by the Biomedical Library's Consumer Health Information Corner to pick up free consumer health information.
In collaboration with the Center for Public Health Initiatives, the Community Health & Engineering Librarian opened the Relaxation Room in the newly reopened Stemmler side of the Biomedical Library. The Relaxation Room is a quiet space intended for folks to take a break from studying and other stressful things. You are welcome to stretch on the yoga mats, do chair yoga, color, write positive thoughts, listen to soothing music, do a puzzle, squeeze a stress ball, and/or play with a fidget spinner! In addition, the Biomedical Library is partnering with the Fisher Fine Arts Library to do interdisciplinary exhibits and events geared towards wellness. In the meantime, please continue adding suggestions to the Relaxation Room Wish List.
