Macmillan Library Project

Are you living with cancer? Or do you know someone who has been recently diagnosed? Then we are here to help.

Macmillan Cancer Support now has a permanent information area at Southampton Central Library. Library staff are happy to help you find the information you want.

You will also find a computer available for confidential research about cancer and library staff can help you to use this if necessary.

We provide lots of free information about anything to do with cancer which you can read at the library or take home with you. There is also some information to help children who may be affected.

There is Macmillan information in every library in Southampton, with the main resources held at Central, Shirley, Lordshill and Bitterne.

Resources can be borrowed from any library using a library card and can be reserved free of charge if they are on loan to another borrower.
