Berwick Hills Library

Middlesbrough Libraries are helping to promote health and well-being with a new collection of books on the difficult subject of cancer.

Cancer is an illness that will touch the lives of most of us at some time or another, whether through personal experience or through helping a loved one.

The new books include titles to help both children and adults and have been recommended and reviewed by Macmillan Cancer Support’s book review panel which includes health professionals and people affected by cancer.

Titles range from books about individual kinds of cancer including breast, lung and prostate cancer to books about treatments and how to support relatives with cancer.

The collections are now available at Acklam, Berwick Hills and Central Library and individual titles can also be sent to any Middlesbrough library on request.

For further information about titles please contact your local Middlesbrough Library.
