Fun Reading Print Page

Let your eyes relax a little...

Tired of reading that heavy textbook? Do you just want a small break from school, even for a few minutes? 

You're in luck! The ResU Library is starting a collection of more relaxing materials that helps you still stay in the mindset of medicine, but allows you to enjoy what you're reading! These books can be checked out for a two weeks and can be renewed as long as no one else requests the material.
