Safety Is Our Priority – Learn more

At ChristianaCare, everything we do is For the Love of Health™, and that focus has guided our response throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We have redesigned how we deliver care to keep our patients and caregivers safe, while providing the high-quality care that our community needs and deserves. This includes greatly expanded options for virtual care and telehealth visits, as well as guidelines that support social distancing, wearing masks, a clean environment and limited numbers of patients and visitors to ensure safety.

The Junior Board Cancer Resource Library is an essential resource to many of our patients. Located just off the main lobby in the east wing of the cancer center, this library is not just an educational resource; it also provides a quiet place for patients and visitors to relax and reflect.

Materials and services available through the library include:

  • Books, including fiction and nonfiction. Most specific to patients going through cancer. Please browse our Library Catalog to see all our offerings.
  • Spanish language books.
  • Multi-media materials, including posters, models, DVDs and CDs.
  • Newsletters and medical journals.
  • Children’s books and educational materials.
  • Music, meditation, relaxation and guided-imagery CDs and DVDs.
  • Cookbooks for people with special needs during cancer therapy.
  • A movie collection.
  • Free Internet access.
  • Workshops:
  • Information about complementary therapies that work safely with the treatment plan your doctor has prescribed.
  • A professional community health librarian and library assistant are available to help you find the information you need.
