Cancer Resource Library at the Helen Graham Cancer Resource Center Closed, Click For More Options

Effective Monday, March 16, through June 30, The Cancer Resource Library located within the Helen Graham Cancer Resource Center will be closed to the public and to the patients and visitors.

These steps are designed to reduce the likelihood of community spread of the disease, protect our caregivers, patients and vulnerable populations, and preserve health care resources so that we can maintain our readiness to care for our community.

Consumer Health Materials pamphlets will continue to be available via the library carts located outside of the library room 1106 on the first floor, on the East Wing Library Cart on the 1st floor outside of Imaging , on the 2nd floor West Wing lobby and on the 3rd floor brochure carousel near the elevators.

Patients may still browse our library catalog showing the available resources such as books, CD’s and DVD’s by visiting Christianacare.org and choosing Health Libraries, Community Health Libraries : Junior Board Cancer Resource Library.

Circulation of the items will still be available and can be picked up/ dropped off by utilizing the Book Drop Box located outside of the library.

As always, the library patrons may reach out to the library by calling 302-623-4580 with any questions or concerns regarding this temporary change.

Thank you for your continued support and collaboration, as we strive to make a positive impact on health for everyone in the communities we serve.
