Living with Cancer? We’re here to help

Books and information about cancer available to borrow (this may take a while to download)

Macmillan Library information centreMacmillan Cancer Support now has a permanent information area at Southampton Central Library. Library staff can help you to 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. This includes books, leaflets, CDs and DVDs and some recommended websites. There is also some information to help children who may be affected in some way. 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.

To find out more please contact Sharon Rees-Williams on 023 8083 2460
