As H.O.P.E. was emerging as a local cancer support network, there were aspirations to include a cancer resource library. The library exists today in honor of Frances Ann Landis, who lost her battle with ovarian cancer in August 1994. Her family graciously donated funds to help propel the dream of the library into reality.
In the beginning, Barb was diligently carrying boxes of books to H.O.P.E.’s support group meetings. Today the library encompasses over 2000 publications. Topics include various types of cancer and treatment, health and diet, coping and grieving, inspiration and humor. A kids and teens section is also available, focusing on these sensitive topics for youth.
The library is located within the H.O.P.E. office and is available to cancer patients, their families, friends, and the community.
We would like to announce a new series of books “100 Questions & Answers”. These insightful and helpful books entail Q & A’s for Lymphoma, Kidney Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Lung Cancer, Liver Cancer, Mesothelioma, Leukemia, Breast Cancer, Brain Tumors, Bladder Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Melanoma & Skin Cancer and Cancer Symptoms and Cancer Treatment Side Effects.
To arrange a visit to the library, please feel free to call the office at 717-244-2174 and we would be happy to assist you. After you find a book to or two that is of interest, you may “check-out” said books and take them home and read them at your leisure.
We appreciate the good intentions from folks who want to donate books to our library, but we try to add new books that are of the latest and greatest information available. If anyone cares to donate to the library, we will accept cash donations for this purpose with which we can purchase the latest versions.
